“Relationships: What is REAL Love?”
The Office of Prevention Programs believes that anyone can make a difference in a student’s life. For this reason we work to provide as many resources as possible to make informed decisions about ways that you can effectively intervene. Although it is impossible to collect all the resources available, OPP strives to keep up with the latest in research and resources, and make some of our favorites available on our website as a jumping off point.
