Teens feel pressure not to report dating violence-- Series Part III

A youth program by Help of Door County is teaching teens to recognize what makes up a healthy relationship.  Executive Director Milly Gonzales says the students that participate in FYRE, which stands for Forging Youth Relationships and Education, are sensitive to the issues facing their peers. Situations that are faced by teens can also put pressure on them to not report the abuse. 

 

 

Gonzales adds that teens may feel additional pressures because of a first-time dating experience and their parents questioning their decision-making abilities. This story is the third in a series during Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month.  You can find more information on FYRE and services provided by Help of Door County below.
