“February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month (TDVAM), "a national effort to raise awareness about abuse in teen and 20-something relationships and promote programs that prevent it." As part of its participation in TDVAM, the Day One organization teamed up with filmmaker Guilherme Marcondes to create a public service announcement that shows how damaging an emotionally abusive relationship can be.”
