Intimate partner violence
Abstract:Dating violence is a type of Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) which is a serious, preventable public health and social justice issue. If dating violence is left unchecked, it can bring short term and long term negative effects to survivors, especially college students who are developing emotionally. We built a mobile application called HELPP Zone (Health, Education on safety, and Legal Participant Preferred) for college students to protect them against potential dating violence. In the HELPP Zone, a user can set a list of trusted contacts and her schedule, and reach them for help based on the context (user’s location, schedule and status) when potential violence occurs. The HELLP Zone is our first step towards creating a platform to end dating violence.
