During February’s National Teen Dating Violence Awareness & Prevention Month, teens and those who support them join together to raise awareness to teen dating violence. Dating violence is more common than many people think. One in three teens in a dating relationship abuse – emotional, sexual or physical. And nearly half (43%) of college women report experiencing violent and abusive dating behaviors.
By joining together every February, we can empower young people with knowledge and skills to increase awareness and stop dating abuse before it starts!
By learning about unhealthy and healthy relationships, and especially sharing how friends can support friends in abusive relationships, every teen can make a difference.
