Educate yourself on Healthy Relationships.

1 in 3 young people will be in an unsafe or unhealthy relationship. - dosomething.org

The line between an affectionate relationship and a controlling, dangerous one can be blurry. By spotting and acting on the signs of abusive partners, you can promote healthy relationship behavior to keep you and your friends safe.

Join the Haven Project to learn the signs of a healthy relationship, the warning signs of an unhealthy relationship, and where to find help if you or a friend need it (either on or off campus).  Upon completion, you will be eligible to volunteer for the Haven Project to help spread awareness on campus so everyone knows how to identify the red flags of an unhealthy relationship.
