CONCOURSE VILLAGE - February is teen dating violence awareness month, and the Healthy Relationship Training Academy is celebrating by giving teens tools to recognize warning signs through workshops.

The mayor's Office to Combat Domestic Violence is looking to make healthy relationship qualities such as trust, respect and equality, go viral with "healthy selfies."

Teens are spreading the world with their "healthy selfies" by talking about and focusing on positive behaviors. 

The idea behind posting the self-photos is to reach people who can't attend workshops. Friends, families and parents can also get the conversation going online about teen dating violence.
