ASAP was established to help non-offending pedophiles/MAPs find qualified, professional Mental Health Care Providers. We believe this is a responsible method of preventing childhood sexual abuse.
Happy Mentally Healthy "People" do not hurt little children. Period.
While protecting children is the core mission of ASAP we also understand the non-offending pedophile/MAP remains a widely misunderstood subject for much of the public. So it is also our job to protect our listed providers from possible collatorial stigmatization and even disruption and harassment just because they have chosen to treat non-offending pedophiles
ASAP is aware that MHC providers treating pedophiles/pedophilia sometimes have reasons to keep the fact that they practice in these sensitive areas out of the general public scrutiny. At the same time these MHC providers want to be accessible to the clients they want to serve. Then considering the way non-offending MAPs often have to seek mental healthcare differently than the rest of the public. This can be for multiple reason not the least of which is it can be dangerous for a non-offending pedophile/MAP to approach usqualified MHC providers due to mandatory reporting laws which our not always understood correctly by unqualified therapists.
To help address these issues, and to facilitate MHC provider refferals, ASAP is building new tools for our ASAP qualified providers for them to manage their own profiles and exactly as they want.
