Resources for Healthy Relationships
Healthy relationships are an important part of being a teenager. Much of high school is spent building relationships whether that be in terms of friendships, romantically, or improving the relationships between you and your parents or other family members. Having healthy boundaries and expectations from your partners and friends will ensure that you are being treated with respect and respecting others as well. We want to make sure you have the resources you need to be able to identify unhealthy relationship patterns, abuse and understand what to do in those situations.
