February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month

February is National Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month.

One in three teens will experience dating violence and two-thirds of them will never report it. Abuse crosses all social, economic and ethnic boundaries, devastating a young person’s health and safety. Dating violence hurts victims, families, friends, schools and communities.

It's time to break the cycle.This Valentine’s Day, we’d like to remind you that everyone deserves a safe and healthy relationship. If you or someone you know has a question about a relationship, healthy or unhealthy, visit
loveisrespect.org or text "loveis" to 22522.

Remember, love has many definitions, but abuse isn't one of them.
