“I used to feel like I was the only who was recovering from sexual abuse. I was afraid and ashamed to reach out. When I first discovered this website, I felt like a prayer had been answered. I could get resources and books for free and read other men’s stories. 1in6 is a beacon that points men to hope, help and healing.”

Your Feedback Matters
If you have questions or need help, we have 24/7 Online Support.
We offer several resources, including guidance about how to select an appropriate therapist or consultant, in Get Help and through the Online SupportLine, which we hope will be useful to you in finding effective treatment, getting personalized recommendations for services or to discuss personal issues.
Because 1in6 does not provide direct service to individuals, we are unable to offer that kind of exchange through our feedback response below.
