Finding informed answers to your questions about sexual abuse, trauma, and healing can be difficult. MaleSurvivor has partnered with TRIP (the Trauma Resolution and Integration Program at Nova Southeastern University) to create the Hope, Healing, and Support Team.

MaleSurvivor’s HHS Team is a FREE, confidential email resource to the public. The HHS team is staffed by doctoral trainees in clinical psychology who have been specifically prepared to provide support to survivors of sexual and/or physical abuse, single incident trauma, and individuals experiencing problems resulting from dissociative experiences.
