looking for conversation group preferably in Canada, or just someone to chat and have emails. .. I'm a 33yo single man, dealing with issues from childhood, i don't currently take therapy.. I don't have anybody around to talk.. so that's why I'm trying to see if there's someone around interested in friendship..

Hi Favero castel,

I had a glance at to look for resources in Edmonton and there are free group therapy/discussion group sessions for men (for 12 sessions) at the Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton.

Their information:
Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton
#205, 14964 - 121 A Ave.
Edmonton, Alberta T5V 1A3
Tel.: (780) 423-4102

It may be a good start in terms of finding other local resources (perhaps some private counsellors run some of their own group discussion groups?) and to make personal connections with others. It is not uncommon for members of a finished group to have their own informal gatherings. I hope that helps! Otherwise, you are here on MaleSurvivor and this is a great place to have regular conversations with other survivors!

I went through our local police department. They put me in touch with victim services, which is run through the United Way here in Ontario. I am waiting to start group therapy on Oct 8th but met with one of the counsellors from Victim services. He was extremely helpful and professional.
Hope this helps, email me diretly if you want to chat further.

the only place that seems to help is called the sexual assault center here in Edmonton. and that was my first choice of course!!! but they are not really prepared having this kind of issues with men!! plus the people who runs that place is a bunch of psychology students really focused on women and with no experience at all!!

I think there's a place in Toronto for men!! but I would have to check back in internet.. also Ottawa..
