Introducing Reach Out - Recognize Relationship Abuse

ReachOut - Recognize Relationship Abuse

1 in 3 teenagers report experiencing some form of abuse in their dating relationships. Only a third of those ever talk about it with someone. 82% of parents said they could recognize if their teen was in an abusive relationship, but more than half could not recognize warning signs. Use an approach that empowers your child to be in control of their decisions and learn about resources that are available for them, and for you.


WNED | WBFO has partnered with the Family Justice Center of Erie County to bring you Reach Out - Recognize Relationship Abuse, online and on television to help give you the tools you need to start a conversation with someone you think might be in an abusive relationship.
