Have you thought about forming a non profit, or not for profit organization, educating, and advertising things locally yourself? Your local chamber of commerce or whatever equivalent you have should be able to help with it. Sexual assault and abuse are far more common than most people even realize. If you can educate them locally, I'm sure that a group will form. I'm thinking about doing exactly that.
If we start doing that, we can gain in strenght and numbers to have our voices heard.

Hey, Bec, sorry that I haven't been in contact, but I was just thinking that one of the retreats is going to take place in Ohio, I think.
What a great place to meet potential other guys who might be interested in gathering together with you.
Just a thought.

David

hello men:

i continue seeking others to form a support group with. it is sad that so many wounded men keep their pain inside or share it only with a spouse for example. i was a member of a such a group before and it was a good experience. if interested pm me at this site. sincerely,


bec

bec,

I'm hoping that this comes together for you. I'm about to try organizing a group here, in NW Oregon. I've heard that some guys have driven a couple of hours to be with their group, once per week, once every two weeks, whatever they have decided the frequency would be. I'll let you know if I discover any "tricks to the trade," so to speak, in finding others who would be interested.
One woman therapist advertised an 8 week mens group with subject matter and everything and no response. I don't know if it would have made any difference if the leader/therapist would have been male, but it was discouraging to know that it didn't fly in this area with over one million men.
Maybe we should engage Ken Singer in this endeavor, maybe he's got some ideas.

David
