This bulletin describes the study of safe, stable, nurturing relationships (SSNR) among children and youth in the United States using a nationally representative sample. It provides a comprehensive assessment of SSNR factors; examines interrelationships among different indicators of safe, stable, nurturing relationships; and investigates the consequences of SSNRs for child and adolescent mental health. Findings are based on the second National Survey of Children's Exposure to Violence (NatSCEV II), which was conducted in 2011 as a followup to the original NatSCEV survey conducted in 2008.
