BOYS ARE NOT MEN, THEY ARE CHILDREN

No child will respond to sexual trauma as an adult might. They simply do not understand what is happening to them. Children have no reference, no lived experience to draw on—and are quite often left to deal with the confusion, fear, shame and guilt in silence. A profound sense of otherness and abandonment is common. Worse, adults all too often choose to believe other adults...and not an abused child, so, as a child—asking for help can be difficult. As men, we understand that we have a right to disclose, to be believed and receive help. Hope for men is here for that reason, we know that taking that first step is difficult, but not to worry, we’ve got your back.
