Campus Resources: A little help can go a long way.
Off-Campus Resources: Additional resources are available to you.
Identifying Abuse: Recognizing abuse is the first step.
Relationship abuse is all about power and control. While you may be unwilling or unable to leave your relationship right now, it’s important to remember that abusive partners are unlikely to change their behavior. Your first priority should always be your personal safety and your safety in the future.
Dating 101: Is my relationship healthy? Information and quiz.
Relationships exist on a spectrum and it can sometimes be hard to tell when behavior goes from healthy to unhealthy (or even abusive).
Safety Planning: Your safety is our first priority. You deserve a future without fear.
A safety plan is a personalized, practical plan to improve your safety while experiencing abuse, preparing to leave an abusive situation, or after you leave. This plan includes vital information tailored to your unique situation and will help you prepare for and respond to different scenarios, including telling your friends and family about your situation, coping with emotions, and various resources suited to your individual circumstance
Ways to Support Those Affected: Helping the people in our lives.
Dating abuse is difficult for everyone involved, including people who attempt to offer support. Those who haven’t dealt with dating abuse before sometimes wonder why survivors don’t just leave their partner, not realizing that ending an abusive relationship is far more complicated than other break-ups (which can be challenging in their own right).
Love is Respect is the national resource to disrupt and prevent unhealthy relationships and intimate partner violence by empowering young people through inclusive and equitable education, support, and resources.
