February is Teen Dating Violence (DV) Awareness Month! Teen DV Month (sometimes called TDVAM) is a national effort to raise awareness about abuse in teen and 20-something relationships and promote programs that prevent it during the month of February.
Dating violence is more common than many people think. One in three teens in the U.S. will experience physical, sexual or emotional abuse by someone they are in a relationship with before they become adults. Help us spread awareness and stop dating abuse before it starts!
This years theme is “Love = Setting Boundaries,” because boundaries are an important part of every healthy relationship. Agreeing on and respecting each other’s boundaries make each partner feel safe and heard, which is so important for keeping a relationship healthy. You have the right to set your boundaries and have them respected at all times.
