Violence Impacts Teens’ Lives

Violence is preventable. Violence can limit life opportunities, lead to emotional and physical health problems, and shorten lives. Far too commonly, teens 14 to 18 years old experience violence, often more than one type such as physical fighting, sexual violence, dating violence, and bullying.

  • Every day about 360 teens are treated in emergency departments for assault injuries.
  • Homicide is the 3rd leading cause of death among teens.
  • Female teens are more likely than males to experience three or more types of violence, as are sexual minority teens compared to their heterosexual peers.
  • Some teens may have a higher risk of online bullying and threats during COVID-19.
  • Violence can impact school attendance and access to community support services.
