Teen Dating Violence Prevention





(Albany, NY) -- Officials are announcing a program for New York State aimed at preventing teen dating violence.

Advocates wore orange, the official color of teen dating violence awareness, in announcing the "Teen Dating Abuse" campaign. Snapchat and Instagram will be used to educate teens about healthy relationships. Experts say although one-and-a-half million high school students report physical abuse and one-third of teens experience online abuse, less than ten-percent seek help.
