I am a survivor who has been fortunate enough to work with MS now for the last 3 yrs. I have found the people to be wonderful. The service that MS provided to me and my wife prior to me coming on the board was invaluable and allowed me to feel comfortable telling my story as a survivor knowing that I would be heard and respected. A great resource for survivors, their friends and family or anyone else who is in this space.

Working on MaleSurvivor's board, I continue to be impressed by the volunteers that support our organization. Professionals from the therapeutic community, survivors of sexual assault, and those who love the men who have been sexually assaulted continue to find ways to encourage healing.

Our 2012 conference brought together all parts of our community to learn new ways to more effectively heal and share our message of Hope, healing and support.

2013 is filled with Weekends of Recovery, more use of the website's discussion board and many opportunities to increase awareness at conferences and Dare to Dream local community events.

As a survivor of sexual assault I was at a loss trying to find help when I was able to begin dealing the the results sexual assault was having in my life. Fortunately, I found MaleSurvivor and support of others who have been through similar experiences and could guide me in my search for healing. The Weekend of Recovery program was like a year of therapy in one weekend. The men on the discussion board board served as compassionate mentors. The very fact that this organization exists helped me know that I was not alone in my hurt. I am honored to be able to give back now as a board member.

I am a survivor of incest who became a licensed counselor specializing in the treatment of trauma and PTSD. When I was in my mid forties and dealing with the abuse that I encountered at the hands of my father, I heard of Male Survivor and later attended one of their Weekends of Recovery. It allowed me to deal more easily and effectively with what I was going through. Now, 20 year later, and after having published a memoir describing my recovery from abuse, I am pleased to be in a role where I can guide the efforts of the organization. Through its multipurpose website, its recovery weekends and its activism on behalf of all males who have been victimized, Male Survivor serves a unique population that is under-served.

At my first MaleSurvivor Weekend of Recovery, I walked into a room with 30 other people I had never met before, and for the first time in my life I didn't feel alone. I can't overstate how important the work MaleSurvivor does every day to help survivors and to create a community of healing. I was honored and humbled when the board asked me to take on the duties of Executive Director earlier this year. I think it says quite a bit about the powerful impact MaleSurvivor has on the lives of survivors that someone who was losing a life long battle with depression and suicidal thoughts just a few years ago could find the hope and support I needed to really do the hard work of healing. MaleSurvivor has helped hundred of thousands of male survivors and their loved ones through our website and other affiliated programs since 1995.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

attending 3 Weekends of Recovery (one with my wife on our honeymoon!), conducted trainings at our International Conferences, and seen and spoken to many other survivors who have been helped by MaleSurvivor.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Raise more funds and tell the world about what MaleSurvivor offers to survivors and their loved ones.
