  • Building a healthy relationship with someone means building a trusting and positive partnership.
  • This type of relationship may take effort and time but it can improve your life and make you feel better about yourself.
  • Healthy relationships are based on kindness and caring for one another.

You have the right to be treated with respect in your relationship with your partner.
