Typically men wait until their 30’s, 40’s or even later before beginning to deal with the negative effects of unwanted or abusive sexual experiences in childhood. By reaching out to young men on college campuses we will encourage them to begin their recovery processes earlier in life, before negative behaviors and thinking become possible adult habits.
1 in 6 Men On Campus National Task Force
Universities and organizations from all over the nation have joined the initiative.
As part of a long-term strategic plan to improve cultural competency, 1in6 is gathering great minds to help them better serve the 1 in 6 men on campus who are survivors of childhood sexual abuse.
Identify the unique cultural barriers to seeking support for the 1 in 6 men on campus who are adult male survivors of childhood sexual abuse, offer solutions to effectively communicate 1in6 resources and provide training to assist campus staff in their awareness and response efforts. JOIN THE TASK FORCE!
What can your school do to be more inclusive of the 1 in 6 male survivors of childhood sexual abuse on campus?:
- Join the task force and learn what other schools are doing across the nation
- Analyze the language in your support literature and dialogues: Is it inclusive? Does it create a safe space for men?
