For Teens –> Love Doesn’t Have to Hurt

If you need immediate help because you are in danger, call 911. If you are experiencing violence or threatening behavior from a partner, spouse, ex-partner, ex-spouse or someone you are dating (whether that person lives with you or not), there are steps you can take to plan for your safety, and for the safety of your children. This is called “safety planning”. Safety Planning is a tool to help you think about your safety. Keeping safe does not always mean leaving your home. In fact, leaving your home without good planning can be a very dangerous thing to do.
