It’s September and we here at loveisrespect are celebrating International Women’s Friendship Month. Just like it’s important to build healthy relationships with your significant other, your friendships should be healthy too. Friends are great for advice and support when you’re going through something difficult. You can also do your part to be a good friend by helping your friend out when he or she is experiencing dating abuse. Whether you’re being a good listener or giving them a place to stay when they have a rough night, your friendship is invaluable.
Because so many young adults experience dating abuse, Kappa Delta launched a campaign called “Friends Say the Tough Stuff…So Say It.” This campaign encourages friends to offer support and intervention when they believe a friend may be experiencing an unhealthy relationship.
