Indiana's Model Teen Dating Violence Educational Materials and Response Policies
Teen dating violence, including physical, emotional, and sexual abuse, affects approximately 1 in 4 youth. It can have serious and long-term effects on teens: emergency room visits, injuries, risky behaviors, and poor emotional health. Recognizing the need to prevent teen dating violence from occurring, the Indiana General Assemby passed SB 316, commonly referred to as Heather's Law. Signed into law in April 2010, it requires the Department of Education to design or identify model teen dating violence educational materials and response policies by July 1, 2011. Beginning March 30, 2011, the Department of Education will accept the submission of materials for review. The Sexual Violence Prevention Program at ISDH is working closely with the Department of Education to ensure schools and community programs has access to model curricula and policies. Click here
