MaleSurvivor: National Organization Against Male Sexual Victimization
June 23, 2013

THis organization has been around longer than any of the others geared to male survivors and it has a terrific group of programs including Weekends of Recovery, an intensive weekend experience with a great facilitator/survivor ratio; conferences every two years or so that welcome both survivors and professionals of all kinds; a Dare to Dream program that has been brought to venues around the country, based on an appearance of 200 male survivors (many from this organization) on Oprah!, which informs the public about the problem and encourages survivors to get help; and a website that in addition to having a lot of resources also offers a chat room and Discussion Forum where survivors can network anonymously and feel less isolated. Several of my patients have gone on a Weekend of Recovery, and the phrase "life transforming" was used by more than one. WIth time, I believe MaleSurvivor will offer services to a wider group of survivors, especially men assaulted in adulthood, as well as family and loved ones (who are, however now served on the Discussion Forum and occasional Weekends of Recovery for men and their partners). All in all, this is a vibrant program with dedicated volunteers that has done an enormous amount of good to an under-served population.
