Review for MaleSurvivor: Online Support Forum for Sexually Abused / Assaulted Men, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am so grateful to have found Malesurvivor.org in 2009 when I was struggling so deeply with PTSD caused by being sexually abused. I had been in general therapy but the therapist did not have specific training in working with sexually abused men. When I found the online forum and interacted with other survivors in the support forum or chat, it was earth shaking in so many ways to learn that what I was experiencing was largely a result of the abuse. I've posted this photo of me at age 5 or 6, before the first abuse was perpetrated against me. I note the gentle smile on my face, and its hard to remember back to feeling that way. I thank all the other survivors who contributed to the 80,000 topics included in the online forum. Its really true: You are Not Alone.

Review for MaleSurvivor: Online Support Forum for Sexually Abused / Assaulted Men, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Been a 12-year member of Malesurvivor and finding their website changed the direction of my life. I was struggling so deeply, more than I understood, because I knew nothing different from growing up as a boy sexually abused by an older cousin, and later by an adult. What I learned through reading the discussion forums and the healing circle chats has made an immense improvement to me and for my family.
