Hi Martin

First, I think its a great effort from your side!

From my personal experience, I went to a group in Pretoria a few years back who also focussed on male survivors. First time was difficult but my eagerness to get help was far more overpowering. Only problem was that the group turned out to do more damage to me than help. People weren't that dedicated to helping each other and I disovered there were some hidden agendas. So for me, that was my attempt and it made me very cautious.

I was committed to recovery but this experience changed my viewpoint as to a "safe place" to try to recover.

BUT, don't get discouraged, it might take some time for trust to develop.
