February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month
Teen dating violence (TDV) affects millions of U.S. teens each year. According to the CDC’s Youth Risk Behavior Survey and the National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey, nearly 1 in 11 female and 1 in 15 male high school students have reported experiencing physical dating violence in the last year ( CDC, 2019). The effects of teen dating violence are damaging; youth who are victims of TDV are more likely to become depressed or anxious, misuse drugs and alcohol, or experience intimate partner violence in future relationships ( CDC, 2019).

Teen dating violence can be prevented. Learn more about preventing TDV from the resources below:
