What makes a relationship healthy? What are the warning signs of abuse? How can you help someone you know is in an abusive relationship? If you’d like to start these conversations with yourself or someone you know, now’s the time because February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. The stats show that 33% of teens in abusive relationships aren’t talking about the abuse, so we must all do something to support teens. It’s estimated that 1.5 million high school students experience abuse from a partner in one year.
On Monday February 11, we hope teens, parents of teens, young adults, and all who care about ending dating violence will join Fem2pt0, Spark Summit, and the DC Coalition Against Domestic Violence for a #HealthyLove tweetchat. Our chat will be from 1-2pm EST, and we’ll be sparking a dialogue on healthy relationships and healthy sexuality for teens and young adults.
We hope you can join us and share your crucial stories, advice, knowledge, and overall enthusiasm! Just use the hashtag #healthylove to join us.
