Male survivors of violenceYou have already survived, now it's time to recover.

Help is available for you and your family. 

Sexual abuse and assault can happen anywhere and to anyone. For men, telling someone that they have been abused or assaulted is often more difficult than it is for women. 

Living in silence or ignoring the trauma you feel can lead to problems at the time of abuse and later on in life. Problems can be physical but also emotional, mental and spiritual. 

 There are thousands of male survivors living in communities across Northern Ontario.

♦ Male survivors come from all walks of life.
 
♦ They are all ages, cultures and religions.
 
♦ Male survivors are straight, gay and bisexual.
 
♦ They are community leaders, fishermen, labourers and professionals.
 
♦ Male survivors are neighbours, friends, fathers and sons.
 
♦ They are strong and courageous men. 
 
♦ Male survivors of abuse or assault often live in silence. 
 
Approximately 1 in 6 men will experience sexual abuse in their lifetime.
 
THE MALE SURVIVORS PROGRAM provides free and confidential counselling support to men who have experienced sexual abuse or assault. The program supports men ages 16 and over to regain a sense of control over their lives by developing positive coping skills. It is designed specifically to meet men's needs in a way that speaks to men. Please do not live in silence. Share how you are feeling with someone you can trust. If you're ready to talk, we're ready to listen. 
 
 
Funding for this Program is provided by the Government of Ontario.
