IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT. It can be difficult to talk with someone and you may feel uncomfortable letting someone know. It is important to let someone you trust and who will believe you, know what is happening to you.

Dating violence can be physical, but it can also be emotional, psychological verbal and/or sexual.

Dating violence/abuse is illegal, and even though you are a teenager, there is information available to get help. Tell an adult you trust about what is happening, and use the following resources to get more information and help.

If you are in immediate danger, or in an emergency, call 911.
