Teen Dating Violence Resources

Domestic violence is not a problem just for adults. Teens experience domestic violence in their relationships, too. In fact, domestic violence is very common in teen dating relationships.

 
 
 
 
 

Recognizing abuse in a relationship is difficult, but especially for teens. Some teens believe certain types of abuse are normal in a relationship, or think its "not that big of a deal." In many ways, teens do experience the same types of physical, sexual, verbal and emotional abuse that adults do.

If you or someone you know needs help with a teen dating abuse relationship please contact the Teen Dating Violence Program at: 704-336-3210
