Fighting with a friend, going through a breakup, arguing with a professor, or dealing with rejection can feel like a life-shattering event for a student. Industry experts will share their expertise in working with higher education leaders to teach students the difference between healthy and healthy relationships, support them on their journeys to mental wellness, and provide them with resources on optimal relationship health.

Industry experts from One Love Foundation and SUNY Oswego will share their expertise and educate higher education leaders about the warning signs of abuse and the 10 Signs of Healthy and Unhealthy Relationships. The goal is to help you expand community awareness and provide the right resources to students so they can learn how to avoid unhealthy relationships and build healthy ones and get the support they need.

In this webinar discussion, we help higher education leaders learn:

  • How to ensure that students' relationship health positively impacts their mental health
  • How One Love’s resources and the 10 Signs can be used as a tool on your campus
  • How to step into prevention education in powerfully positive ways

About One Love Foundation

The One Love Foundation was created in 2010 to honor Yeardley Love, a young woman killed by her ex-boyfriend just weeks before graduating from college. After her death, her family recognized the need for prevention education that helped young people and those who support them understand the signs of an unhealthy and dangerous relationship and know what to do when they see them.

Since launching its national educational work in 2015, One Love educational resources have been used by thousands of high schools and colleges to educate more than 2.3M young people.  
One Love’s 10 Signs of Healthy and Unhealthy Relationships have become a critical language that empowers students to advocate for themselves and help each other. In addition to helping them understand unhealthy and abusive dating relationships, students also quickly recognized the relevance of the 10 Signs as a helpful language for navigating other important relationships in their lives.
