Resources for teens

Loveisrespect.org strives to be a safe, inclusive space for young people to access information and get help in an environment that is designed specifically for them. Their website provides comprehensive education on healthy, unhealthy and abusive dating relationships and behaviors.

Loveisrespect mobilizes parents, educators, peers and survivors to proactively raise awareness on healthy dating behaviors and how to identify unhealthy and abusive patterns. Through trainings, toolkits, and curriculum, we are growing community educators and advocates to promote healthy relationships and prevent future patterns of abuse.

HAVEN’s friends at DSVS in Red Lodge, Montana have developed a program for teen dating violence prevention called Power Up, Speak Out! In their own words, “Power Up, Speak Out! is a toolkit for educators that encourages middle school students to think critically about healthy relationships, power dynamics, boundaries, and consent. We take a positive approach that focuses on what TO do, rather than what NOT to do.” Learn more at powerupspeakout.org.
