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

Rating: 5 stars  

For decades I thought I as alone in my childhood sexual assault (CSA). One night, and decades of stuffing my abuse away, panic attacks, flashbacks, relationship issues... I wanted to end my life.

Calling a crisis line, I was directed to RAINN, which then got me CSA specific help in my state. It was also recommended I check out MaleSurvivor as additional online support. My journey to survive my abuse began!

The words “You’re not alone” Had such weight behind them when I first signed on to MaleSurvivor. I was in this to save my life! The members from the welcoming volunteers, to other survivors was overwhelming and welcome.

Coupled with Therapy, MaleSurvivor offers as a sounding board for the things I’m working through. There have been dispirited times when I just feel alone in my journey, and simply need to talk with someone. Having a therapist is highly recommended when engaging at MaleSurvivor. I’ve learned from MaleSurvivor and Therapy that - I have a voice. I am strong. I am not alone. It wasn’t my fault. Those words sound cliche, but there is real weight and validation behind them, because I’m here to share this with you.

I would recommend MaleSurvivor to anyone going through therapy and needing a community behind them - because they’re not alone.
