1 in 6 men were sexually abused in childhood: Let's talk... #childabuse

Entry to the Living Well "Let's Talk" competition. Research tells us that 1 in 6 men have been sexually abused in childhood and that on average men will take 22 years to tell someone about it, 10 years longer than women. When men do come forward, they often speak of how limited public discussion of this issue adds to a sense of isolation and desperation.

This is a sad and serious issue. I live near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania which is dealing with two major child sex scandals. We must all work together to protect our children.
