Male Survivors: Rape Victim Help
The following is a list of organizations (arranged in alphabetical order) dedicated to male survivors of sexual abuse to offer the rape victim help and where you can obtain further information and in some cases, help and/or counseling. There are many scars left from past child sexual abuse and adult relationships can be affected.
The information is accurate as of the time of publication, but resources change over time and this does not represent a complete list of all that may be available. Many churches, for example, offer resources that may not be publicly known. The inclusion of an organization on this list does not imply an endorsement, but merely a resource.
Offers a wealth of information and resources on its website, including an online helpline and a lending library, for men who have experienced unwanted or abusive childhood sexual experiences and those who care about them. Their site is for men at various stages of seeking information and help, including those who donâ€™t see themselves as â€œsurvivorsâ€ or their experiences as â€œabuse.â€ 1in6 also provides trainings for therapists and other professionals.
