I'm looking to listen, share experiences and give support with other male survivors in the Twin Cities area. I can't find a group for this and I'm even considering organizing one. I know of people who have done it and have some ideas about it.

I know of:
SNAP once a month,
The Men's Center,
Adult Children of Sexual Dysfunction (no contact info)

None of these are the weekly, 6 or more men support oriented kind of group I think I want. I guess I was hoping for something free, i.e. peer leaders. So:

Any other groups I should know about?
Contact me (post here or PM) if you'd consider joining so I can gauge interest if I try to start a group.

Depending where it is, I could come. \:\) I bus it, so it's more difficult. But I'm in the Twin Cities too.

I don't know of any other group that's specifically for survivors. \:\(

Good luck!

This is great 2 new guys from the cities. I couldn't come to a meeting weekly but would like to get together sometime when I am in the cities. I live 2 hours away but am up there a lot.


I think the men's center has a weekly meeting for survivors.

I also thought The Mens Center had weekly meetings - I was just about to call them and see if I could join - but then my employer put me on 2nd shift - so I am unable to make the meetings - but hopefully when I get a new job I'll be able to attend their meetings - I'm a hour and a half away - but I think it would be well worth the trips

Oh wow!!! I'm totally going to the CSA one, and perhaps another one, too. Easy enough to get to, by bus.

Thanks for this info guys! Been looking for a group for myself, and I got two!

I have an Idea and would like to run it by you guys.

What about us getting together once a month for a live peer support group meeting, I know through being part of the the Healing Circles that peer support can be a very powerful tool in our healing.

We could get together on a Saturday am for a few hour at some restraut that has a private room. Let me know what you think.

Tom

I can probably come, but another group I hope to go to meets on Saturdays from 10am - 12am, at the men's center. Let me know when and where and I'll work it out!
