February Is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month

Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month at NYSCADV

February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month (TDVAM), a month dedicated to bringing attention to an issue that affects 1 in 3 teens in the United States. TDVAM is a national effort focused on advocacy and education to stop dating violence before it starts.It is dedicated to increasing education and awareness about teen dating violence. It is also a time to promote safe and healthy relationships by talking about healthy and unhealthy relationship behaviors, recognizing the warning signs, connecting adolescents to support, and identifying innovative strategies for preventing dating abuse from happening in the first place. To support DV programs across New York State in their efforts to raise awareness, NYSCADV has developed the Know Your Worth companion campaign, which includes graphics and text you may use throughout the month.
