Social Media Toolkit: Child Abuse Prevention Month


Hello prevention community!

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month (CAPM), and we want your help to empower communities with resources to support Texas children, youth, and families where they live, work, and play!

For the month of April, we encourage you to promote child abuse prevention awareness with your networks. Our goal for this month is to reach as many individuals as possible to equip families with knowledge and resources to support child abuse prevention practices in Texas.

This toolkit includes:

  • Daily messages to use in promoting child abuse prevention awareness;
  • CAPM resources; and
  • Sample CAPM imagery to share and post.

These messages and links can be used as is or they can be customized in any way that works best for your community by directing to your prevention program’s information. Thank you for continuing to support the children and families that live, work, and play in your communities.
