National Phone Numbers

Stop It Now! Helpline
1-888-PREVENT (1-888-773-8368) (Monday to Friday, 9:00AM to 6:00PM EST)
This is a toll-free number for adults who are at risk for sexually abusing a child, for friends and family members of sexual abusers and/or victims, and for parents of children with sexual behavior problems. All calls are confidential and will be answered by a trained staff member. (They encourage people to report to the legal system, but they will not report anyone themselves.) If you need someone to talk to, but you’re afraid to start the conversations, calling the helpline may be a good first step.

Gay Men’s Domestic Violence Project
This website contains information on the similarities and differences between domestic violence in gay and heterosexual relationships. There are a few survivor stories from gay men abused by other gay men, myth-debunking about intimate partner abuse in gay relationships, and information about why men (and gay men in particular) stay in such abusive relationships.
