Challenge

More than 1.5 million high school students report physical abuse from a dating partner each year, and one in three adolescents in the U.S. is a victim of physical, sexual, emotional or verbal abuse from a dating partner. Teen dating violence has been linked to decreased school attendance and lower grades, as well as eating disorders, suicide attempts, teenage pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections, and substance abuse.

Solution

Loveisrespect, the youth-focused project of the National Domestic Violence Hotline, gives young survivors a place to turn. Its mission is to engage, educate and empower young people to prevent and end abusive relationships. Our highly-trained advocates work 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide safety planning, advocacy, support and empowerment to young survivors of relationship violence and others who are affected. All of our services are anonymous, confidential and free.

Long-Term Impact

Young people who are able to avoid or leave abusive relationships are likely to be physically and mentally healthier and better able to reach life goals, including succeeding in school. Understanding red flags in relationships will also help young people avoid unhealthy relationships in the future as they transition to adulthood.
