Sandusky Trial

As the Sandusky trial moves forward, MaleSurvivor will be providing expert information to help people make sense out of what is happening, and will offer helpful tips and support for those who may become triggered by trial coverage. The following section, our Facebook page and our Twitter account will be updated regularly.

If you find yourself feeling upset, confused, and/or triggered by the coverage of the trial please try to take some time to practice self care. Taking a few deep breaths, trying to center yourself, and getting some exercise are all good ways to train your focus onto other things. And, of course, remember our discussion forums and chat room are always open and a great place to find support. If you are in crisis, please contact your therapist or a doctor.
