February is National Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month
In 2010, as part of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), Congress declared the entire month of February as National Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month. In today's world, one in three teens reports experiencing some form of abuse in their relationships, with most cases going unreported. Many teens are in relationships with unhealthy norms such as jealousy, lack of communication, lack of trust, and lack of privacy, especially with social networking and cell phone abuse. In 2013, we worked with over 200 clients that were under the age of 20 and identified being victims of abusive relationships. Please click on our "Latest News and Events" tab to see the activities we are hosting in Butte County.
One of the largest barriers for teen victims is that they lack an awareness of resources and services. Please share Catalyst’s website and Facebook page through email or social media. Help shine some light on the issue of teen dating violence.
