Statistics say 1 out of every 6 males is sexually assaulted prior to the age of 16, but that number could be much higher than we realize. Why? Tragically, many boys and men keep their abuse a secret due to shame and fear.
Dr. Kelli Palfy is a registered psychologist, retired RCMP officer and author of Men Too: Unspoken Truths About Male Sexual Abuse. She first became familiar with males as victims of sexual abuse when she worked with the Child Exploitation Unit of the RCMP in the early 2000s. She has since made it her goal to become an advocate for boys, young men and adult men who are too ashamed to speak up about the abuse they’ve experienced and thus suffer the consequences of staying silent.
