Dr. Phil Highlights Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline
Posted 12/31/2008 by Derrek Hofrichter
A few months ago, Childhelp was featured on an episode of the popular Dr. Phil program. Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline Director Susan Schmidt sat in the audience for the show taping and took questions on air from Dr. Phil about child abuse and about the hotline. Dr. Phil ended the show by putting up the hotline number on screen, 1-800-4-A-CHILD, and telling everyone that this was a number they needed to write down and share with anyone who might need it.

Yesterday, the program re-aired around the country. Both times it has aired, we have received a significant increase in calls to the hotline from people in crisis. We are thankful to Dr. Phil for sharing with his readers the hotline number and information.
