Healthy Relationships

  • A healthy relationship is one in which both partners feel supported, connected, and respected.

  • A healthy relationship involves people who are able to maintain their individuality and be respected for their differences.

  • A healthy relationship is one where both partners are able to communicate their feelings freely.

  • In a healthy relationship, each person is able to have boundaries and their partner should respect those boundaries.

  • Consent in a relationship is fluid...it can always change.

  • Just because you've consented once does not mean that you've consented for all future times.

  • Relationship abuse can come in many forms including physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse & coercion, reproductive coercion, financial coercion, and digital abuse. For more information on abuse, click here.
