...nope...

The ladies have an EXCELLENT one that is strategically paired with MS, but I know of no other organization like MS.

Ladies: "PandorasAquarium"

URL: might be "Pandys.org...not sure

I've heard pandora's has major problems with males there, sad really. Another site is www.aftersilence.org. Mixed gender but is a good place like here 2.

Thank you, I tried pandora's and bufalo is right. Pandora's has a total double standard and they do not like guys on that site. I was amazed at how badly i was treated there.

Agreed about Pandy's.

When I brought up about the issue, my post was deleted and I get nasty PM's from the head op and was basically told I could leave if I had issues with it. So I did. Even insisted they deactivate my account, which they happily did as well.

I've been a member there for YEARS and I have never felt SO unwelcome. They moved the men's forum to a position of sub-topic of a sub-topic just under something like "Community Outreach."

But I was answering the question directly. {Are there any other male support groups?} Pandy's is one BIG honking site with online activity unlike anything I've ever seen.

Menthriving.com is back-alley at best. No rules of decorum or safety. Always seemed like a cruising place to me with a heavy emphasis on homosexuality, not healing.

The web site 1in6.org has a lot of good resources, and a 24hour support line that can be accessed via telephone or online chat. There's no forum or chatroom though.

that has not been my experience at all. From what I've seen, they are a small but very authentic group of guys who are genuinely devoted to supporting each other.
