As area schools work through their first semester of classes, Help of Door County is helping parents and victims of teen domestic abuse in the area. Reportedly, 1.5 million high schoolers nationally admitted to being victims of physical violence from a romantic partner. Help of Door County Executive Director Steve Vickman says parents should not hesitate to reach out for help if they suspect abuse.
Vickman advises parents to always keep the lines of communications open and talk honestly while not being judgmental when those situations happen to their child. You can find contact information for Help of Door County with the link below.
