Teen Dating Abuse is #NotJustPhysical
Dating abuse, especially among teens, often doesn’t involve physical violence or injuries. Controlling and hurtful words are red flags in a dating relationship and can leave emotional scars. While February – marked in New York State and nationally as Teen Dating Abuse Awareness Month – is over, the importance of education and awareness continues.
Use this toolkit, which features graphics to share on social media, posters and other items, to keep the conversation about teen dating abuse going throughout the year.
