About 1 in 10 teens who have been on a date were also physically abused by a boyfriend or girlfriend in the last year. Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month is a national effort to raise awareness and protect teens from violence. You can help by spreading the word about teen dating violence, and ways to prevent it.
With this and other National Health Observance toolkits offered on healthfinder.gov, we’ve made it easier for you to make a difference. The toolkits provide resources for organizations like schools, health care providers, health departments, and more to raise awareness about critical public health issues, like preventing teen dating violence.
This toolkit is full of ideas to help you take action today. For example:
- Add information about preventing teen dating violence to your newsletter.
- Tweet about Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month.
- Add this Web badge to your website.
- Join the conversation about Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month.
By raising awareness about teen dating violence, communities, organizations, and health professionals can work together to help teens have relationships that are safe, and healthy.
