Join the Healthy Relationships Project (HRP), a project of Missoula City-County Relationship Violence Services, for an art opening reception in honor of teen dating violence month on Friday, Feb. 12 at the Zootown Arts Community Center Mini Gallery from 5:30-8:30 pm. One in three adolescents in the United States is a victim of physical, sexual, emotional or verbal abuse from a dating partner, a figure that far exceeds victimization rates for other types of youth violence. The impact of dating violence extends beyond the immediate experience of the teen, impacting the entire community. Violent relationships in adolescence can have serious ramifications by putting victims at higher risk for substance abuse, eating disorders, risky sexual behavior, suicide and adult re-victimization. For more information about teen dating violence and healthy relationships, along with interactive quizzes and access to peer counseling, visit www.loveisrespect.org.
