Teen dating violence awareness week 2016 Free no sign up text chatrooms
Throughout the month, the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) will be running a series of blog posts highlighting important issues affecting youth victimized through dating violence.
May 24 and 25, at 7pm Level Up: An Epic Relationship Adventure, tracks the journey of 4 teens who find one another and “create a new game” to escape their problems.
Teen dating violence is more common that most people think, and impacts 1 in 3 adolescents in the United States through physical, sexual, emotional and verbal abuse.
Teens who suffer dating abuse are also subject to long-term consequences like alcoholism, eating disorders, promiscuity, thoughts of suicide, and violent behavior.

Osage Nation Family Violence Mission Statement To empower those seeking our services with the tools they need to rebuild their lives and become the strong individuals they were created to be; to effect social change through outreach and education in order to put an end to intergenerational violence; and to partner with state, county, and tribal court systems and law enforcement to hold perpetrators accountable for their crimes.
The program also supports efforts to implement prevention strategies in schools and communities using an online system that helps assess and monitor the capacity for implementing a comprehensive teen dating violence initiative.
Although this public health initiative focuses primarily on teens, it’s important to remember that dating violence can happen to anyone, and knowing how to recognize early signs of abuse and how to prevent unhealthy relationships is important for everyone.
This means it is important to not only teach teens how to develop and maintain healthy relationships, but also how to recognize when an unhealthy relationship is forming.
On Monday, ONFVP Director Olivia “Libbi” Gray met with Osage Nation Principal Chief Geoffrey Standing Bear to update him on awareness efforts from the Osage Nation and take photographs with the Chief signing a proclamation of support on behalf of the Osage Nation for TDVAM.
The proclamation states, “…by providing young Osage people with education about healthy relationships and relationship skills and by changing attitudes that support violence, we recognize that dating violence can be prevented…establishment of Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month will benefit young Osage people, their families, schools and communities…” Chief Standing Bear has kept a busy schedule this New Year working on several initiatives for victim advocacy, prevention and awareness.
The Travis County Commissioners Court and the City of Austin designated February as "Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month" and urged all youth and adults to join in conversations about non-violent and safe relationships.
