“Healing is impossible in loneliness; it is the opposite of loneliness.”

Would you like to know how to create a peer support group in your community? Download MaleSurvivor’s Peer Support Guide.

You can post information about a peer group in the “Classifieds” Forum on the MaleSurvivor Discussion Forums.

More and more research is providing support for a principle that MaleSurvivor has understood since it’s earliest days – bringing survivors together in an environment where we can speak in safety and receive support from others can be a critical part of healing from trauma and sexual abuse.

From the guide:

Many survivors wish to have a place in their lives where they can speak openly and be heard without fear; a place where they are not seen as broken, where their defense mechanisms are seen for what they are. Survivors desire a space where the issues they suffer seem more normal. They want the ability to speak out and be understood. Survivors want to claim what they’ve long been denied: feelings of safety, acceptance and empowerment. Delivering this is the essence to the peer support group.
