Hello everyone,

just joined this forum as I think I need some help. I have a friend, someone I care about a lot, whom I strongly suspect has been abused as a young man. I'm looking for some guidance on what to do and how best to help him.

I've left a lengthy version of events in the friends and family board. Any help would be gratefully received,

welcome to

i hope you find some help here.
getting someone to open up depends a lot on how ready that person is to get honest. it could be very difficult.
just knowing that someone cares is good,
but may not be enough to establish communication.
trust is a huge issue for survivors.
then there is stigma and shame and secrecy.
serious obstacles.

i wish you well.
