New, local nonprofit organization holds first annual event - STAHRS for Healthy RelationshipS

Posted by duanebarone@stahrs.org

The Parker Texas Roadhouse is supporting STudent Athletes for Healthy RelationshipS inaugural event to educate the public about the harms and negative consequences of interpersonal violence, especially domestic violence. Information will be provided regarding the prevalence of DV issues and its correlation to other forms of violence, such as teen dating violence, sexual assaults, bullying, and substance abuse. STAHRS promotes inclusion and acceptance within student populations to reduce bullying and rejection of others, which is highly correlated to other mental health and substance abuse issues.

STAHRS will provide copies of our anti-bullying / interpersonal violence curriculum to easily explain the basics of human psychology, emotions, and behaviors. STAHRS hopes the materials can change the dynamics of our community, homes and schools. Our mission is to lower the trajectory of violence in our schools, families, and communities. STAHRS hopes to improve relationship and family dynamics and prevent involvement with the law enforcement agencies for conflicts that get out of control. IT'S ALL ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS!

The event will also salute our military families and the additional challenges they face from stress of separation, anxieties over family member safety, and the negative effects, such as mental health issues associated with combat injuries upon return, etc.
