Abusive Relationships

According to the National Domestic Violence Hotline, 1 in 3 adolescents have experienced some form of relationship abuse. Southern Valley Alliance strives to educate teens and young adults about the characteristics of unhealthy and abusive relationships and empower them to talk to a trusted adult if they are questioning aspects of their relationship or need help. By promoting awareness, sharing warning signs, and encouraging individuals to create healthy personal boundaries, we take a step towards preventing and stopping the cycle of abuse.
