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. While they might not come to you directly, as an educator, you are in a unique position to see the warning signs and red flags. They are likely to be hiding the situation from family members, but be more open in school. If you recognize the signs, take action. Learn how on the project website.

Buffalo Toronto Public Media 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.
