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.

Why build this resource center? Did you know men are less healthy and have a shorter life expectancy than women, on average? Part of this is because men are more likely to go long periods of time without going to the doctor, they’re less likely to adopt preventive health measures, and are more likely to engage in risky behaviors.
One of the goals of this site is to show men how health issues are interrelated. How being obese can effect your cardiovascular system. How successfully managing your diabetes can lead to a healthier life. How parenting and fatherhood can encourage you to live a more fulfilling lifestyle, not just for you, but for your family.
So, take an active approach to your health – it could save your life.
