Public Input Sought for Statewide 5-Year Child Abuse Prevention Plan

The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) Office of Child Abuse Prevention (OCAP) is asking for input from private and public agencies and organizations, and private citizens and consumers to use in developing an effective, statewide comprehensive child abuse prevention plan.  Public input can be provided by completing a brief questionnaire that is available at the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/OCAPPublicInput.

The survey provides an opportunity to share input on community resources in your area.  The information will be considered and included in the upcoming five-year Oklahoma State Plan for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect.

Child abuse and neglect is a complex issue.  Information is being gathered statewide to find out what factors contribute to abuse and what individuals think will work best to protect children in their community.

The focus of the survey is on factors and family stressors that are connected with child abuse and what strategies that the participant believes impact the prevention of the four specific types of abuse: physical, sexual, emotional, and neglect.

Participants are encouraged to freely share this information and survey link with others who might be willing to provide input into child abuse and prevention in their area.

For questions or more information about the State Plan for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect, contact the OSDH Family Support and Prevention Office by phone, (405) 271-7611 or by email, SherieT@health.ok.gov.  The deadline for submitting input via the online questionnaire is Friday, April 26.
