In addition, mental health professionals frequently make statements that influence public perceptions and policies regarding minor-attracted people. Such statements need to be informed by accurate, first-hand knowledge about minor-attracted people, especially about those who do not violate the law or otherwise come to the attention of professionals and the public. Such knowledge can only come from face-to-face communication. Historically, when mental health professionals have learned that popular stereotypes about stigmatized groups are inaccurate, they have challenged these stereotypes and stigmatization.
We are always seeking to expand our circle of minor-attracted people and mental health professionals. If you are interested in helping us to promote respectful communication and mutual respect and empathy in order to make positive mental health services available, then contact us so we can learn more about you and your interest in our work.
