Access to mental health services should not be denied due to one's attraction to minors or one's beliefs about those attractions.

As an alliance of therapists, researchers, and MAPs, B4U-ACT’s mission is to promote a science-informed understanding about people in our communities with an attraction to children or adolescents, and to support them living in truth and dignity.

Who are minor-attracted people and why might they need support?

Many minor-attracted people would like to receive mental health services but are afraid to seek them due to stigma and lack of trust. B4U-ACT aims to improve access to compassionate mental health care that addresses clients’ own stated needs, and combat misconceptions among professionals and the general public that perpetuate secrecy, stigma, and fear.
