The Consequences of Abuse

Past data shows that dating violence can have long-lasting effects. Those who are abused in their teens are more likely to drop out of school, suffer from depression, binge drink, abuse drugs and have suicidal thoughts compared to those who have not been abused. Also being abused young can make you more likely to be victimized as an adult in future relationships.
