The Vancouver Island Men’s Trauma Counseling Society (Men’s Trauma Centre) was formed in September, 2003 in response to the closing of the Victoria branch of the BC Society for Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse (BCSMSSA). The Men’s Trauma Centre provides support and/or counseling services to over two hundred men and their family members each year. The Men’s Trauma Centre is becoming increasingly busy and we now run a wide range of therapy programs, educational outreach and an advocacy service, as well as providing vital support during the criminal justice process from initial reporting through to trial.
Why We Exist
While the majority of sexual abuse is by males on females, anyone can be a victim of sexual trauma. Research suggests that between 20% and 30% of all male children are sexually abused before the age of eighteen. Many of the boys who suffer trauma grow up to be men whose lives are seriously impacted by their early childhood experiences. These men suffer from anxiety and depression, are haunted by flashbacks and nightmares, have trouble finding or keeping jobs, have problems maintaining intimate relationships and much more. To compound the difficulty they also experience the social stigma and the guilt and shame associated with victim-hood that is often significantly stronger for males.
Despite the media stories of male survivors of abuse that have come out over the past few years, many people remain unable or unwilling to respond to this problem and the long term damage it creates both individually and at societal level. We believe it is vital, both to the individual and to society as a whole, to address the issues and concerns of male survivors. Prevention, education, treatment and support are the means.

The Eating Disorder Support Network of Alberta (EDSNA) is a registered charity based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada that believes no one should face an eating disorder alone. EDSNA offers professionally-facilitated support groups in Edmonton, Calgary and online via video conference. We provide support for people who are directly impacted by eating disorders as well as those who are indirectly impacted such as parents, partners and loved ones. Services are offered at a nominal fee, thanks in large part to funding received from Alberta Health and private donations.
EDSNA also works to raise awareness in the community about this complex illness by hosting Eating Disorders Awareness Week (Feb 1-7), offering presentations, and information booths. EDSNA's website offers evidence-based resources, hope and guidance to healthcare professionals, family members, educators, fitness instructors and, of course, people with eating disorders.
