2014 Truth About Abuse Survey Results

Silence speaks volumes. Mary Kay surveyed more than 500 young men and women nationwide who anonymously shared their experiences with dating abuse including emotional, sexual, physical and digital abuse. The survey, among other key findings, aimed to understand how long teens and young adults suffering from abuse wait before they reach out for help.
