February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month


As we celebrate the month of love in February, many others will experience dating violence. Unfortunately, teens are more likely to experience dating violence than any other age group. One in three teens in the U.S. will experience some form of dating violence from a romantic partner.

Take action and show Orange County teens that love shouldn’t hurt this February in honor of Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month (TDVAM).

TeensWhat is teen dating violence? Teen dating violence (TDV) is a pattern of behavior that includes physical, verbal, emotional and digital abuse, in a dating relationship.

TDV is an issue that impacts us all. Together, we can raise awareness and promote safe, healthy relationships.
