Mahwah High School in conjunction with the Mahwah Municipal Alliance, will be hosting a student assembly by a Partnership For Change on teenage dating abuse.
A Partnership For Change’s teen dating abuse forums are designed to give high school students information on the important issue of dating abuse. This dynamic presentation addresses all areas that include: types of abuse, warning signs, dispels myths, how to support a friend who is in an abusive relationship or possibly being abusive, safety planning and resources.
