Have you experienced abuse in a dating relationship?

Nearly 1.5 million high school students nationwide experience physical abuse from a dating partner in a single year. [1]

Dating violence is a reality and happens for many reasons. The primary reason for dating violence is the abuser’s need to maintain power and control over his/her partner.

Remember: Dating violence, if it happens to you, is NEVER your fault.
