CSA Survivors

Support and resources for MAPs who experienced child sexual abuse

The conflation of minor-attracted people (MAPs) with child sexual abusers prevents MAPs who have experienced child sexual abuse (CSA) from receiving support, as they are often viewed as abusers and denied access to resources for survivors. MAP Resources believes everyone deserves support, and we strive to combat this unjust exclusion by listing resources that are available to all survivors.

MAP Resources cannot vouch for all of these organizations' stances regarding minor-attracted people. We encourage MAPs to exercise caution when engaging with them.
