The Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline takes pride in participating in research studies to best understand the populations we serve, the needs of help seekers, and best practices in supporting those impacted by child abuse and neglect. Research aids the mission of Childhelp in meeting the physical, emotional, educational and spiritual needs of abused, neglected and at-risk children. In growing our body of knowledge, we amplify the voices of those silenced by abuse.
