One in 10 high school students has been purposefully hit, slapped or physically hurt by a boyfriend or girlfriend. But only 33% of teens who were in a violent relationship ever told anyone about the abuse, and 81 percent of parents say teen dating violence is not or they don’t know if it’s an issue. A teen’s confusion about the law and their desire for confidentiality are apparently two of the most significant barriers stopping young victims of abuse from seeking help. Americans Ending Abuse believes teens and young adults need far more education about safe dating practices and how to prevent or get out of an abusive relationship. After her boyfriend broke up with her in April, 2013, Rockwall High school freshman volleyball player Hanna Clark, 15, suddenly committed suicide. Not long after, the Clarks established the non-profit Hanna4Hope, foundation to bring teenage suicide, one of the leading causes of death among today’s youth, to the forefront of communities. Shortly after they established their organization we offered emotional support and arranged to publish a series of news stories on The Rockwall News, which is owned by AEA founder J.J. Mission of parents of suicide victim Hanna Clark now to prevent other teen suicides- The Rockwall News (Aug.
In November, 2014, we shot and edited a video showing their Teen Council discussing the objectives of the foundation and what they hope to accomplish.
Americans Ending Abuse believes partnering with organizations like Hanna4Hope will help prevent and reduce teen suicides, teen depression and other dating problems. Education is the key to teaching students and young adults how to deal with dating violence and avoid or get out of abusive relationships. In November, 2014, we were invited and met  with officials at University of North Texas (UNT) to provide speakers in 2015 to help prevent dating and sexual abuse on campus.
In June we were told by officials at Texas A&M-Commerce that they would welcome speakers and other efforts to help prevent dating and sexual abuse on campus. Teens are far more likely to turn to their peers  to solve their problems more than their parents or family members.
In December, 2014, a Spanish teacher agreed to help us start a chapter at Rockwall-Heath High School in 2015.


A comparison of Intimate Partner Violence rates between teens and adults reveals that teens are at a higher risk of intimate partner abuse.
Females ages 16-24 are more vulnerable to intimate partner violence than any other group – almost triple the national average. Intimate partner violence among adolescents is associated with increased risk of substance use, unhealthy weight control behaviors, sexual risk behaviors, pregnancy, and suicide.
A significant number of women who are involved in abusive relationships as adults report that they had at least one abusive dating relationship as a teenager, and that they grew up in a home where one parent abused the other. For many people the first thought is gang violence or some of the headlines of school shootings. It is important to realize that power and control are underlying causes of family and dating violence. The Morehouse Summer Program at Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia, will offer a Summer Institute for African-American males entering the 10th and 11th grades.
Our goal is to send speakers and establish peer group safe dating chapters at middle and high schools, as well as colleges and universities, nationwide to provide this needed education. Her parents, Tim and Raina Clark, told us she had never experienced rejection before and apparently made a tragic, spur-of-the-moment decision to deal with her pain. Their mission is to educate families and community leaders on the possible signs of suicide and to provide a variety of resources for parents, teens, and community organizations. We plan to produce other videos, arrange more  news stories and free web ads with more news operations, as well. Establishing Safe Dating Chapters can be very helpful for teens in middle and high school, as well as colleges. The fact is that the problem is much more wide spread than what we see in the headlines or on the news in the evening. Left unchecked, violent attitudes and behaviors carry over in the teenage dating relationship.
In the teen years it may be difficult to recognize the difference between romantic love, nurturing love, and addictive love (or unhealthy love).


In an abusive relationship these cycles are more pronounced, often seem more dramatic and can happen in a quicker time. This program includes three weeks at Morehouse College between June 7 and 28, 2009, at a cost of $400 (which includes meals, housing and activities). Through charitable donations, fundraisers and other community-based events, Hanna 4 Hope endeavors to reduce suicide’s devastating effects on the lives of our youth, their families, friends, and loved ones. By adulthood, these patterns are likely to continue in the form of family violence, affecting the behavior of yet another generation.
Skill-building activities will include creative writing, SAT prep, debate, pre-calculus, leadership development and other enrichment activities. Wanting you to spend all your time with them, controlling what you wear, say or do are all danger signs of an unhealthy relationship. This can be productive in a healthy relationship because it brings differences and concerns to the surface where they can be talked about and resolved.
The abuser may call you names, make threats, or in other ways attempt to make you feel badly about yourself. If you cannot talk to parents about the situation, try a counselor at school or other trusted adult. In a healthy relationship each partner wants the other to continue to grow and develop as an individual. The behavior will continue without the abuser getting help to understand their problem and to make changes. We sometimes feel if we just love the person enough, or change ourselves enough, they will be different.
