Healthy Intimate Relationships
Many young adults find themselves in their first serious relationships in college. It can be an exciting timeóespecially if the relationship is fulfilling, adds to our self-worth, and helps us to grow as individuals. Healthy relationships, those that provide us with positive feelings, are an important part of the human experience. However, occasionally, relationships can leave you with feelings that just arenít quite right and might be considered "unhealthy."
IUPUI Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) provides information to help you determine if you are in an unhealthy relationship. Topics include: characteristics of a healthy relationship, warning signs of relationship violence, how to help someone you think may be the target of relationship violence, and many resources on campus and in the community. See the US Department of Justice website for dating violence information. Want something more local? Indiana has a coalition against Domestic Violence.
