MaleSurvivor does not provide crisis services or intervention. If you are in immediate danger, or if you know a child is in danger, please call 911. If it is not an emergency situation, contact a local rape crisis center or family services agency in your state. If you seriously suspect abuse or neglect, or that a child is in danger, report it to your local Department of Human Services, or Child Protective Services Agency. If you are concerned that a child is being harmed in the US, you can also call Childhelp USA® at: 1-800-4-A-Child.

Many times reports can be filed anonymously, if that is a concern. For information on resources near you please consult our list of state agencies, or consult this State by State listing CPS agencies compiled by the Child Help Partnership

Sites to Help Survivor's Families

If you are the parent of a child who has been abused, welcome. We are sorry for what has happened, but please know that with hope, healing, and support every survivors of sexual abuse can recover. The sooner a child who has been abused receives the professional support they need to process what was done to them and to begin the healing process, the greater the chance they will not suffer negative, long term, emotional repercussions.


Malesurvivor maintains a free directory of therapists here: You will find listings of therapists in almost every state and some locations outside of the US as well.*

Please know that our website is also always available to you as a resource and support as well. Our website's Friends and Family forum is a great place for you to connect with other parents who are struggling with how to help children who have been harmed. As a parent, it's important to recognize that the abuse of a child harms you as well, and you need to ensure that you are receiving the care and support you need to be able to best provide the same for your child.

Please remember that our discussion forums are a resource for adults, not children. There is simply no way to provide a safe online community for young survivors that we have found yet.

* (Due to the costs that would be required, no attempt is made by MaleSurvivor to do background investigations, police checks, or to do any level of checking into a person's level of expertise, scope of professional competence and/or malpractice history, although we do make an initial check for proof of insurance, licensure, and for unlicensed persons we check proof of current membership in a professional organization. MaleSurvivor does request that each professional comply with their own professional code of ethics, but no attempt is made by MaleSurvivor to check the accuracy of their compliance.)
