Review for MaleSurvivor: National Organization Against Male Sexual Victimization, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I joined MaleSurvivor in 2005 after realizing that the abuse I suffered as a child was getting in the way of my mental health. I felt hopeless and struggled to deal with the emotions I had buried for years. The community at MaleSurvivor let me know I wasn't alone, and served as a support as I worked through the trauma of childhood sexual abuse, and helped give me the courage to leave a bad relationship behind.

I drifted away from the site as my mental health improved, and entered into a healthy relationship that lasted eight years until my partner passed away. With their passing, all the old emotions and trauma resurfaced and needs to be dealt with. MaleSurvivor was my first stop for support as I searched for a counselor.

I don't know where I would be without the support MaleSurvivor supplies. As a way to pay it forward, I volunteer with MaleSurvivor so others might find the support I found.
