April is National Child Abuse Awareness Month. According to Four Corners Child Advocacy Center Director Rose Jergens, one in 10 children will be abused by the time they’re 18 years old, but only 30 percent of them will report it. She says 39 million adults in the U.S. are victims of abuse. In an interview with KSJD’s Austin Cope, Jergens explained how abuse isn’t limited to certain social or economic demographics.
