A Woman's Place (AWP) hotline 1-800-220-8116, is available to anyone 24-hours a day.
The hotline is free, private, and confidential. 

1 in 3 teens in the U.S. experiences physical, sexual, emotional, or verbal abuse from a dating partner before they graduate high school. Of those who will be involved in an abusive relationship, only 1 in 3 will ever tell someone about the abuse, and they are most likely to tell a friend.

Teens & young adults hold the power to create lasting social change amongst their peers, in their schools, and throughout their communities. It is essential for all young people to know about healthy relationships, dating abuse, and community resources in order to know how to:

  • build healthy relationships with friends, dating partners, & peers
  • recognize the warning signs or "red flags" of dating abuse
  • support a friend who has been in an abusive relationship
  • reach out for help
  • prevent dating abuse from occurring in the future
