February is
Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month

Each February, young adults and their loved ones across the nation raise awareness about the issue of teen dating violence through Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month (TDVAM). This annual, month-long effort focuses on advocacy and education to stop dating abuse before it starts.

Check out ways to spread awareness this month with printable awareness month activities.

Teen Dating Violence Prevention & Resources


Dating violence is more common than you may think, especially among teens and young adults:  1 in 3 U.S. teens will experience physical, sexual, or emotional abuse from someone they’re in a relationship with before they become adults. And nearly half (43%) of U.S. college women report experiencing violent or abusive dating behaviors.

Teen Dating Violence Prevention

Our prevention and outreach program has specially trained staff to provide presentations to children & youth in schools, community youth organizations and churches throughout Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties.

EXPECT RESPECT is a resource where teens can find advice on setting boundaries, healthy relationships, and how to support friends who are in abusive situations.
