Teen Violence Awareness Month

February is National Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month (TDVAM). In the United States, 1 in 12 high school-aged teens reports experiencing physical violence while dating. Additionally, 1 in 12 also experience sexual violence related to dating. The goal of TDVAM is to break the cycle of violence. Make a difference by talking with the teens in your life about healthy relationships so they know what is acceptable and not acceptable with dating. Help them to make a safety plan for home, school, when out with friends, or on a date. The National Dating Abuse Helpline has tools to help guide the discussions.
