For over 10 years we have been working with men who have experienced trauma and we are here to listen to you. 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...)

Wings Foundation

WINGS’ mission is to break the cycle and heal the wounds of childhood sexual abuse by providing education, advocacy and support to adult survivors, loved ones, providers and communities. Specifically, WINGS works to connect survivors, loved ones, providers and communities with the resources they need to speak about, heal from and thrive beyond CSA trauma, to live their fullest, healthiest lives. We do this by offering referrals to qualified therapists, training and education, and therapist-facilitated support groups in a number of confidential locations to adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse and their loved ones. Our program serves anyone who is 18 and older. Our “Survivors’ & Loved Ones’ Guide to Healing” handbook is a comprehensive resource used in our support groups to facilitate group members’ processes of learning and healing. The most powerful aspect of our program is the dialogue and exchange that occurs among and between group members in their weekly WINGS support group. In addition to support groups, WINGS offers local and national referrals, workshops, speaking presentations and training to survivors, loved ones, service providers and the general community. WINGS also offers this comprehensive website and an onsite resource lending library containing information on healing from childhood sexual abuse and trauma. We invite you to utilize these resources to become more informed and empowered in your own journey as a survivor, loved one, community ally or professional working with CSA trauma. While WINGS is currently based in Denver, Colorado, and our support group services are primarily offered here, we are actively building organizational capacity to be able to offer our services nationwide. If you would like to learn more about being a WINGS partner, please contact our Executive Director at jenny.stith@wingsfound.org  (Read More...)
