Help Stop Teen Dating Violence

Teens, families, organizations, and communities are coming together to make healthy relationships the norm for everyone. You can help. Spread this message!

Respect Can Help Prevent Dating Violence
Dating violence can happen to any teen. Violence is never acceptable. Respect can prevent it from happening at all.

A healthy relationship is built on respect. Communicating and managing uncomfortable emotions like anger and jealousy keep relationships safe and nonviolent.

The Problem to Prevent
Teen dating violence includes physical, sexual, psychological, or emotional violence in a dating relationship, including stalking. It can happen in person, online, and on devices with current or former partners.

  • About 10% of high school students reported physical violence and 11% reported sexual violence from a dating partner in the 12 months before a CDC survey in 2015.
  • Over 8.6 million women and 4.2 million men experienced intimate partner violence in their lifetime and experienced some form of violence by that partner before they turned 18, according to a 2017 CDC Report.
  • Many teens don't report abuse to friends and family out of fear for their safety, embarrassment, low self-esteem, or not recognizing the behaviors as unhealthy.
Stop Dating Violence Before It Happens
Teach skills to create healthy relationships early - the sooner, the better! Teens will benefit from positive dating and peer relationships by having:
  • Positive self-image and leadership skills
  • Better interpersonal, communication, negotiation, and empathy skills
  • Reduced anti-social and unhealthy behavior
  • Improved school performance
