1in6 Responds to Penn State Story

1in6 is saddened by a former Penn State football coach’s alleged sexual abuse of many boys and the failures of adults to protect or help those boys. We are committed to educating the media and the public on the sexual abuse on boys and men, and to providing resources that inform and help those affected.

For example, 1in6 board member David Lisak has been interviewed on CNN and former advisory board member Jim Hopper on WTOP all-news radio in Washington, D.C. Drs. Lisak and Hopper have been interviewed for stories appearing on NPR online and 1in6 has been named as a resource by CNN, WTOP, ESPN radio and The Daily Collegian, Penn State’s student-published newspaper, and we have provided information and resources to Penn State’s Counseling & Psychological Services Department.
