Speaking Against Violence Advocating for Healthy Relationships

We're passionate about helping teens develop healthy, positive relationships. 

We do so by helping youth and adults:

  • recognize warning signs of unhealthy and abusive relationships, 

  • understand the components of healthy relationships, and 

  • know where to go for help.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.       1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Short & Long-term effects

Steadily over time, the abuser chips away at the victim’s self-esteem. The victim doesn’t recognize this, and they end up feeling defeated and demoralized. They don’t believe in themselves, and they doubt their own worth. They feel like they can’t do much right in the eyes of their partner and possibly others.


They’re isolated and alone without anyone to confide in, let alone do something fun, relax, or laugh with.

How to Help

Visit the pages on this website to learn more, and share the warning signs with teens to help them be able to identify them. 

If you suspect that someone you know may be in an abusive relationship, learn how to talk with them and help them develop a safety plan. 


There are many national and state resources for teen dating violence and sexual assault/date rape. 

Local counselors are also helpful. Ensure they're experienced with teen dating abuse and violence.

Schools may also have programs in place to help .


PIC is available to speak at schools, churches, businesses, and other organizations or groups to help raise awareness and protect our youth.
