Leah and Deveter are back and better than ever. Check out this latest episode of Let's Chat as they talk about Teen Domestic Violence with guest Marq Brown!
Teen dating violence is common. Data from CDC’s Youth Risk Behavior Survey and the National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey indicate that:
Nearly 1 in 11 female and approximately 1 in 14 male high school students report having experienced physical dating violence in the last year.
About 1 in 8 female and 1 in 26 male high school students report having experienced sexual dating violence in the last year.
26% of women and 15% of men who were victims of contact sexual violence, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime first experienced these or other forms of violence by that partner before age 18.
If you or someone you know is dealing with DV there is help please reach out to Safe Horizon 1-800-612-HOPE (4673)
