February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness month, and we want to make sure you have the right tools to help your teens safe.

1 in 3 teens are a victim of physical, emotional, verbal or sexual abuse by a dating partner.

Are you able to spot the signs of an unhealthy relationship in your teen?

Here are six signs your teen may be in an unhealthy or abusive relationship. It is very important to have conversations with your teen about healthy relationships. This will help build a strong relationship and create an open line of communication.

If you see signs that your teen may be in an unhealthy or abusive relationship and need to reach out to us for advice, please call our 24-hour Hope Line at 307-358-4800

Giving Focus: Self Care

50730789_675706696165497_4928824221720641536_o.jpg

We are excited to start offering a specific giving focus for each month here at the Converse Hope Center. Our goal is to give an opportunity for the community to give back and be involved, while keeping the donations focused, and specific to the needs of survivors.

This month's Giving Focus is Self-Care. Many of those who come to us have been beat down physically, emotionally and mentally. They have not been allowed to take care of themselves for so long that they have to retrain themselves to do it.

Here are some practical things that can really help our survivors learn to prioritize their mental health and can help ease anxiety.

Donations can be dropped off at either CHC location, 126 N. 5th St. in Douglas or 506 W. Birch St. Suite 10 in Glenrock.

National Compliment Day

National Compliment Day

National Compliment Day is an unofficial holiday which falls annually on January 24th. The purpose of this holiday is to say something nice to your friends, family, and co-workers. After all, giving out compliments not only makes the receiver happy and helps build up trust between that person and you but studies have shown that giving out compliments also has a beneficial effect on the person giving out the compliment. In other words, give out a compliment and you may make yourself happy as well.

While this holiday isn’t very well documented, it is believed that it was started by two women from New Hampshire in 1998. These women, Kathy Chamberlin of Hopkinton, N.H. and Debby Hoffyman of Concord, N.H., created National Compliment Day to let people know that paying compliments are not only an easy way to connect with another human being but that it is also a very positive way.

another human being but that it is also a very positive way.

3 Reasons Compliments Are Important

According to psychologists, compliments are very powerful. Probably much more than you would think they are. If you don’t believe me, then all you have to do is look at the following benefits that compliments  provide:

  • It Motivates People-If you tell someone they are doing a great job, then it can provide motivation for them to work even harder and do an even better job. And that’s a powerful effect considering that people who don’t feel appreciated for the jobs they do end up doing worse of a job than someone who feels appreciated but isn’t being complimented.

  • It Spreads Happiness-As I stated before, compliments not only make the recipient happier but studies have shown that it can make the person giving out the compliment happier as well. And who doesn’t want to be happy? After all, smiling is shown to burn calories.

  • It Creates A Positive Environment-Giving out compliments not only benefits the giver and the receiver of the compliment in the workplace, however. It also benefits everyone. Studies have shown a link between workers giving each other compliments and them feeling more positive about their working environment.

So go out, and make sure you compliment someone today.
