Raising awareness about teen dating violence

February 10, 2017


Most young people are thinking of flowers, candy and romance this time of year, but February is also Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month.

Teen dating violence is any physical, psychological/emotional, or sexual violence that occurs in a dating relationship. It can happen face-to-face, via text messaging, or even online. Learn more about the different types of teen dating violence, and find out what you can do if you think a teen is in an unhealthy relationship.

If you know someone who is not in a safe relationship, call the WINGS 24-hour helpline, 847-221-5680.
