Unhealthy relationships can start early and last a lifetime. So-called normal behaviors like teasing or frequent texting can become abusive and develop into something more serious like controlling and violent behaviors. Dating violence is widespread with serious social, emotional and physical health effects. Remember, relationship abuse can happen to anyone regardless of age, gender, income, sexual orientation, religion, or immigration status.

The good news is, dating violence is preventable. We all play a role in preventing teen dating violence and promoting safe, healthy relationships.
