Male Abuse Awareness Week


Every December 1st through 8th is Male Abuse Awareness Week.

Male Abuse Awareness Week is an awareness campaign hosted by the P. Luna Foundation and this website is an extension of that program.

This is a program dedicated to the special needs of young boys and men who have been victims of cruelty abuse, in an attempt to help them deal with the crippling effects of past child abuse in all its forms. Most abused males avoid therapy and treatment because they are too ashamed or afraid of being judged for doing so. By bringing the subject to light once a year we hope to make this topic more socially acceptable and in return more men will seek the help they desperately need but in many cases avoid.
