Menís Sexual Abuse Survivors Support Meeting
1 in 6 men have survived sexual abuse at some time in their life


WHAT WE DO
Meet every Sunday afternoon to offer encouragement and support as fellow survivors of sexual abuse. We provide a safe environment to discuss dealing with the effects of abuse, ways to heal, and share available resources. It is not our desire to merely rehash our experiences, but to work towards a healthier future. In supporting each other we hope to help one another move forward with our lives. This is purely a peer support group and is not facilitated by a therapist.


HOW DO I COME TO A MEETING?
We are currently meeting in a safe and comfortable community center with other men who have contacted us prior to coming to a meeting. We prefer to talk or e-mail with men before they come to a meeting to let them know what to expect and then give them the location of the meeting. This also helps in building a safe environment for survivors to share. We ask that all members of the group respect the privacy of each member and not repeat what is discussed nor disclose who is attending. You may contact the point member listed below to discuss attending a meeting and to learn the location and date of the next meeting.

Most survivors do not become perpetrators of abuse themselves. This group is for non-offending survivors. If you are a survivor and are abusing others we urge you to find appropriate help. This group would not be appropriate for you


Meetings are held on Sundays from 4pm to 6pm off the 405 freeway in Marina del Rey

Thanks for posting this info I sure do hope that the men in need find this. Any support groups run by trained men and or women can really help you along the path of healing.

lots of love, Nathan
