This Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month (TDVAPM), we invited Rhode Island students to share what a healthy relationship means to them and submit their questions about safe and respectful dating. Creating an open space for youth, teens and young adults to learn and talk about healthy relationships is an important part of preventing teen dating violence. Through social media, we invited the community to learn more about healthy relationships, circumstances unique to LGBTQ+ relationships, digital consent and other safe dating topics.
