Childhood abuse and neglect has long-term consequences for youth from crisis. The more trauma a child has experienced, the higher the likelihood for mental, emotional, and physical manifestations of the trauma as the child grows into adulthood.
High levels of childhood trauma can lead to risky and self-harming behavior as a way to cope. This turns into real challenges like substance abuse, unwanted pregnancy, incarceration, violence, and feeling unwanted and alone.
