BookSlide.org is an after-school program, helping seniors prepare for life after high school and college. They cover a variety of topics, from finances to college life.
According to Anna, who mentors the group, one of their discussions was about domestic violence. It was an introduction to Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October and Teen Dating Abuse Awareness Month in February. It is a crucial conversation for their age group.
Their last activity was to research domestic violence. They were to work with a person they had never met before. One group found our page, https://www.innov-efoundation.org/category/domestic-abuse/.
That group, Addie and Danny, came across another helpful article about domestic violence: https://www.criminalattorneycolumbus.com/blog/2020/01/a-guide-to-domestic-violence-and-getting-help/.
According to Anna, their entire group found the information on our page helpful to their mental health discussion.
We want to thank the teens who found our website helpful in their research and best wishes for their life’s journey.
February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month (#TDVAM).

You can set up boundaries for yourself and others.

There are many ways teens are abused. Some are subtle.
The wheel here shows types of abuse, whether physical, emotional or sexual.
