Counselling and Support For Male Victims of Abuse
If you have been the victim of abuse or are currently in an abusive relationship, it’s important to know that you’re not alone. It happens to men, men from all kinds of backgrounds. Abuse whether it was in the past or is happening in the present, has a serious physical and psychological impact on the man and the people he cares about.
Men are vulnerable
Men are victims of abuse and violence
Men are victims of sexual abuse
Men and boys are abused by both women and men
Men are traumatized by abuse
Men are victims of domestic violence
You are Not Alone. Talking to someone can help
One of the primary factors that keep men from getting the help they need is a fear of being judged or blamed. Talk to a friend / partner or a professional that you feel will respect and acknowledge what you are going through and help support you in your healing.
