Drops in Child Abuse & Neglect Reporting During COVID-19

Virtual environments were integral in the shift to remote work and education. However, a completely virtual world has come with drawbacks, especially in the youth and child welfare system. Throughout the pandemic, there has been a drop in child abuse and neglect reports to Child Protective Services (CPS) in the United States. 

Multisystemic Therapy (MST) is a family-and-community-based alternative to juvenile incarceration that strives to keep youth safely at home. If you are interested in bringing MST to your community, contact us here.
