It's Teen Dating Violence Awareness month in Alberta.

According to a study published by the Public Health Agency of Canada in 2020, called the Health of Canadian Youth - 40 per cent of grade 10 girls and 32 per cent of grade 10 boys report being victimized in their dating relationships. 

Ally Cramm with the Rowan House Society says it's a good time to get the message out.

"We're just trying to raise awareness and if you follow us on social media, whether that's Facebook or Instagram, we'll be sharing some stats to help empower the community to talk to their teens so that they don't have to experience teen dating violence," she says.

In 2022 Rowan House did over 80 school presentations to almost 3,000 students talking about teen dating violence.
