February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month

February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month, dedicated to raising awareness of teen dating violence and helping youth establish healthy relationships.

Teen dating violence is aggressive, threatening, and/or manipulative behaviour from a partner in a romantic or sexual relationship, and is more prevalent in Canada than many expect. 40% of grade 10 girls and 32% of grade 10 boys report being victimized in their dating relationships. 34% of girls in grade 10 and 19% of boys in grade 9 report emotional dating violence victimization, 20% of girls and 17% of boys report being cyber-victimized by their dating partner (source: The Health of Canadian Youth: Findings from the health behaviour in school-aged children study).
