This week is male abuse awareness week, a chance to bring awareness of hidden victims of abuse.
Many men live their lives never disclosing what happened to them. There is still a stigma attached to men who disclose. The fact that one in six are survivors of abuse. This needs to be changed. Men are seen as strong and should have fought the abuser off. I ask you how can a young boy of any age be asked to fight off their abuser.
We need to help the thousands of male survivors to start their healing journeys and bring this in to the light. And reach out to those who need someone to tell their story to and to just say I belive you.
