Healing From Within

Healing from Within

Healing from Within is a program to assist men to heal from Sexual Abuse.

Help is Available
It is clear that there are potentially significant long term physical and mental health consequences to childhood sexual abuse. The individual who is a child sexual abuse victim will access health services more frequently than their non-abused counter parts, they will demonstrate varying levels of depression and anxiety and they will have difficulty in maintaining relationships. All of these problems are exacerbated if there is not an appropriate level of support when they choose to self-disclose. The severity of the consequences is in part directly related to the amount of support available. Given that it may be even more difficult for men to disclose than it is for women, that level of support available may even be more critical.
