Abuse in Teenage Relationships


Do you sometimes feel frightened, intimidated or controlled by your partner? Or do you constantly have to watch your behaviour in case they get angry? If so, you’re probably being abused. This webpage from NHS Choices covers abusive behaviours in teenage relationships.

This webpage gives information about what abuse is in a relationship, getting help if you’re being abused, what to do if you think a friend is being abused, and where to go if you are abusing someone.


This is a great webpage for young people who might be struggling with abuse in their relationship. It is also good because it specifies that abuse can happen at any age where as most websites say it must be between two adults over the age of 16. The provision of a helpline and services for those who are being abusive is also outstanding.
