TEEN DATING VIOLENCE AWARENESS

February is National Teen Dating Violence Awareness & Prevention Month.

Dating violence can happen to any teen in a romantic, dating, or sexual relationship, anytime, anywhere. But it shouldn’t have to happen at all. Dating violence can have a negative effect on health throughout life. Victims of teen dating violence are more likely to experience symptoms of depression and anxiety. They might also engage in unhealthy behaviors, such as using tobacco, drugs, and alcohol. Teens who are victims in high school are at higher risk for victimization during college and in adult relationships.
