Stop the Silence

The Mission of Stop the Silence: Stop Child Sexual Abuse, Inc. (Stop the Silence) is to expose and stop child sexual abuse and help survivors heal worldwide. Our overarching Goals are to 1) promote CSA awareness, prevention, and healing; 2) stop child sexual abuse and related forms of violence; and 3) celebrate the lives of those healed. CSA is not one group’s problem; by expert accounts it is a silent pandemic throughout the United States and the world, creating havoc – for the affected children, the adult survivors, and the society. It can be prevented and treated with a conscious and sustained effort. Stop the Silence helps provide that effort.  (Read More...)

Call to make an appointment 250.381.6367 or email (info @t menstrauma dot com) History 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.  (Read More...)
Mothers of Sexually Abused Children (MOSAC)

The MOSAC site is designed specifically for mothers who have experienced the sexual abuse of one of their children. Life is difficult for mothers following the disclosure of a child's abuse, and they often have few, if any, resources available to them. Mothers sometimes have no supportive family or friends. They often have very little knowledge about child sexual abuse and want to read about and understand what has happened to their children. Most mothers of sexually abused children say that they need and want help following disclosure. This site is designed to be a comprehensive source of information about sexual abuse and to offer support and resources.  (Read More...)
