Are You In An Abusive Relationship?

One in three teens experience some form of violence in their romantic relationships. If it doesn't feel right, it probably isn't.
If you’re in an unhealthy or abusive relationship, figuring out the next step can be very difficult. You have feelings for this person and have developed a history with them. However, it’s the future, not the past, that you should consider. Will you be happy with them? Will you be able to achieve your goals? Will you feel safe? Whatever decision you make, we can help you plan for your safety.

What is Cyber Bullying?

Cyberbullying is the use of technology to harass, threaten, embarrass, or target another person. By definition, it occurs among young people. When an adult is involved, it may meet the definition of cyber-harassment or cyberstalking, a crime that can have legal consequences and involve jail time.


Bullycide is a new term used to identify those children/teens who were victims of bullying and became so emotionally distressed that they committed suicide.
