Get Help For Teens and Young Adults

Marin Youth Services
Relationships exist on a spectrum, from healthy to unhealthy to abusive — and everywhere in between. It can be hard to determine where your relationship falls, especially if you haven’t dated a lot.

We can help:

  • Figure out if what’s going on in a relationship (whether talking, hanging out, or hooking up) is healthy or not.
  • Connect with others who are dealing with similar issues.
  • Make a safety plan and talk about options.
  • Get emergency shelter and/or legal protection.

How?  Call our hotline at 415-924-6616 or text our youth services phone line 415-526-2557.

Also, peer advocates are available for assistance and support 24 hours a day. Seven days a week from the National Dating Abuse Hotline: Live chat and text @   Text “lovies” to 77504 or call 1-866-331-9474
