Our “Be Real In Relationships” Teen Dating Violence Awareness Campaign (#BeRealInRelationships), presented by Memorial Heathcare System, will encourage young people (and everyone!) to have honest conversations with the important people in their lives, and not feel like they or we have to change to “fit in” – whether that’s in families, social circles, or relationships. No one should feel like they need to “put on a show” in their relationships, or feel like they need to live up to unrealistic standards. Instead, we should all be able to be our true selves in relationships, because a healthy relationship is one built on equality, trust, communication, and most of all, respect.
Wear Orange Day, Feb. 7
In your workplace, school, at home, and everywhere, we invite everyone to Wear Orange to spread awareness of Teen Dating Violence and promote healthy relationships!
You can take a picture and post it on social media – tag us at @WID_Teen and use the hashtags #TDVAM #WearOrange #BeRealInRelationships
Virtual Workshop Series for Parents
Free educational workshops open to all parents and adults in the community featuring topics like healthy relationships, communication, boundaries, and mental health. The goal of the series is to provide parents and supportive adults with the tools to connect with youth and understand issues that impact them. We want them to gain applicable information and tools so that they can act as trusted adults for the youth in their life, which can be a significant protective factor in the prevention of dating violence and of youth getting help if they need it.
Dates are Feb. 9th, 16th, 21st, 23rd, and 28th all starting at 5 PM
