Congress declared the entire month of February to be National Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month in 2010.

According to the Domestic Violence Awareness Project, approximately 1.5 million high school students in the United States experience physical abuse from a dating partner. One-quarter of parents don’t talk to their teens about domestic violence.

Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month encourages parents and adolescents to take an inventory of their relationships. Abuse includes physical, psychological or sexual abuse. Visit youth.govloveisrespect.orgbreakthecycle.org for conversation starters and resources.

If you or someone you know has been the victim of dating violence, free and confidential help is available 24 hours a day through the National Dating Abuse Helpline.

Break the cycle. Start the conversation.  Use #teenDVmonth and #loveisrespect to share on social media.
