The statistics are startling: One in three teens experiences abuse in a dating relationship. But what exactly defines abuse? Debby Ryan is making it her priority to keep us informed, thanks to her recent “Don’t Look Away” campaign with Mary Kay Cosmetics, which aims to raise awareness and promote the importance of healthy relationships. We’ve been Debby Ryan fans for a while now, but we’re extra proud of her for bravely speaking from her own experiences and being a light for a dark path that, unfortunately, too many people find themselves traveling.
Spread the word by posting a pic of yourself and two friends (per the one-in-three statistic mentioned above) using #DontLookAway. And if you or someone you know is in an abusive situation, don’t be afraid to text “loveis” to 22522 for help.
