Domestic violence is a serious problem, and it’s not just an adult problem. Teens experience abuse in their relationships, too. In fact, teens and young adults are often the most at risk for domestic violence. It affects many people in many ways and it can happen anywhere and to anyone.
Are you are concerned about your own relationship? Someone else’s? Do you just want to be more informed? Whatever your motivation, educating yourself about the issue is the first step to ending domestic violence.
