April is national Child Abuse Awareness Month. We talk with Deb Schnider, director of the Children's of Alabama CHIPS Center ( Children's Hospital Intervention and Prevention Services). We discuss what they do, and how to open the door for dialogue on this topic with children. Important: if you believe a child is in immediate danger call 911, if you suspect child abuse call the Jefferson County Department of Human Resources at 205-264-8160 and if you want to reach the CHIPS center call 205-638-2751.
