Partners can be anyone the man selects (friend or relative) who is over 21 years of age, English speaking and has access to or ability to speak on the phone.

Men and their partners will be assigned to one of two groups. Each survivor will receive 8 telephone calls over an 8-week period for about 30 minutes each.
