When we think of abuse, we usually think of physical violence – stuff that everyone can see, actions that leave a bruise; but abuse can happen in lots of different ways, including things that are done and said over texts, comments, and DMs. It’s harder to see the marks those behaviors leave. When unhealthy behaviors happen on our phones, it can feel very lonely and overwhelming because other people can’t see what’s going on and offer support.

If we could say something to the characters in One Love’s new PSA — Mario, Stephanie, Ruth, and Kayla —it would be that they don’t have to suffer alone, and that we all deserve healthy relationships. When we can recognize the signs of healthy and unhealthy behaviors in ourselves and others, we can better choose how we want and deserve to be treated. If someone continues to treat us in an un- healthy way, we get to choose what kind of role they play in our lives.

What Teachers Need to Know to Help Students With Chronic Health Conditions

It's estimated that 1 in 4 children in the U.S. have a chronic health condition, which makes them particularly vulnerable during the COVID-19 crisis. SHAPE America and the National Association of Schools Nurses developed this poster series of four of the most common chronic conditions in school-age children — anaphylaxis, asthma, diabetes and seizures — to show physical education teachers how to recognize and respond to a health emergency.
