Mission Statement

"To educate and train parents and professionals, and to conduct research that will prevent the shaking and abuse of infants in the United States".

Description

The National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome (NCSBS) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and is the only worldwide organization that is dedicated solely to the prevention of this form of child abuse. The National Center began offering SBS prevention programs in 1990 and incorporated as a legal entity in 2000. The NCSBS has been providing leadership in the development of prevention programs, training courses and public education campaigns. Every year, the National Center's ongoing training efforts reach thousands of medical, legal, child protection and law enforcement professionals worldwide. The prevention and awareness programs also teach thousands of parents, students and caregivers throughout the world. These programs cannot continue to reach communities without the support of people who share our commitment to protect children.

The NCSBS focuses their efforts in two areas: professional training for those who work with SBS/AHT cases, and prevention education for parents and
those who work to prevent child abuse.
