Tyler Perry pens emotional foreword to self-help book

From WENN.com

Perry, who was himself sexually abused as a child, penned the piece for a self-help book called Joining Forces: Empowering male Survivors to Thrive by Dr. Howard Fradkin.

The actor/director, who did not receive a fee for his words, reveals he accepted the task to encourage other men and boys to speak out about their past and move on from the experience.

In a post his Facebook.com page, he writes, ""There (are) a lot of boys who have been abused and hurt... Most men never saying a word about it, just suffering in silence....

""I know that this is difficult to talk about or even acknowledge, especially for men. That's why I am so happy that Dr. Howard Fradkin has written a book called Joining Forces to help men who are adult survivors learn to cope, deal and most of all stop suffering in silence...

""I know the pain and the darkness and the shame that we as men can carry when these evil acts have been put upon us. But I also... know the peace and comfort that comes along with healing from the horror. Healing can start by reading this book.""
