In 2009, one in ten high school students experienced dating violence (CDC YRBS 2009). Dating violence has important negative effects on the mental and physical health of youth, as well as on school performance. Violence in an adolescent relationship sets the stage for problems in future relationships, including intimate partner violence and sexual violence perpetration or victimization throughout life.
