CHAMPAIGN COUNTY — A domestic violence support group says it’s more of an issue for young people than you might think.

Courage Connection says men and women, between 18 – 24, are most at risk for domestic abuse. They say, if someone tells you they’ve been abused, the best thing you can do is believe them.

Statistics show one half of young people who have been victims of dating violence have attempted suicide.
