Relationships can be fun but they can also be unhealthy, abusive, or even dangerous. Dating violence is too common a problem in our communities and is accompanied by a lack of awareness, creating long-lasting effects for victims. One in three teens in the US is a victim of physical, emotional or verbal abuse from a dating partner, a figure that far exceeds rates of other types of youth violence.
