Sydney 8 Week Group starting May 7 | SAMSN - Survivors & Mates Support Network

SAMSN’s support groups for male victims of childhood sexual abuse are based on more than a decade of successful groups run by Psychologist Mark Griffiths through the Sexual Assault Service at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Sydney. Hundreds of men found support through these meetings. Mark is now assisting SAMSN to run similar groups; each group will have two experienced facilitators to guide the two-hour meetings that run for eight consecutive weeks.

No matter what the details of your abuse, you can contact SAMSN about joining. Acceptance is an important feature of their joint recovery so the groups are open to men from different cultures and sexual orientation. There are clear guidelines to ensure confidentiality and a structure that ensures the whole focus of the groups is SAFETY.

Men who have completed one of the 8 week groups can continue to use the support of other Survivors. SAMSN men meet once a month to continue their shared journey at relaxed meetings with the same support, same safety and same mateship. “Don’t let those feelings of isolation back into your life,” says Mark Griffiths. “Keep in contact with SAMSN and in helping yourself, you will help SAMSN grow so it can help other men like yourself.”
