Did you know that only one out of three teens involved in abusive relationships confide in someone about the violence they experience? Today’s youth should be encouraged to reach out to trusted adults in times of need. These survivors can also seek confidential counsel and advice from professionally trained adults and peers. We encourage you to utilize and share these resources with your loved ones.
