Resources

One of the issues facing men is that it can be hard getting support for difficult problems, whether they are medical, emotional or otherwise — men are often expected to “tough it out”.

We’d like to offer our support to men in need who don’t know who to turn to, but we’re not trained for it. However, we hope some of the resources on this page will help you find someone who is.


Sexual Health

In many places, accurate sexual health information isn’t given in schools, and as an adult you may not know where to turn.

Information


Sexual Assault

Men can be the victims of sexual abuse, sexual assault and rape.

Domestic Violence

Some estimates suggest that nearly half of domestic violence victims are male. If you are one of them, please — seek assistance. You don’t have to deal with it on your own.

Sexual Identity

Loving other men doesn’t make you less of one yourself.

Depression & Suicide

Men often don’t have access to the emotional support they need in times of stress. If you’re having difficulty coping, it’s okay to ask people help.

Transgender & Intersex

Not everyone is born into the body that society expects. That’s okay too.

    Could you add this site to the Domestic Violence section. I have found it enormously helpful during my recovery.

    Also I understand why you have called the Domestic Violence section the Domestic Violence section, but I would suggest renaming it the Domestic Abuse section. This is because abuse survivors minimise their abuse, and this minimisation prevents us from seeking help. For example, “she wasn’t violent, she only slapped me, therefore I don’t need to to seek help for domestic violence.”

    Also non-violent emotional abuse is devastating in it’s own right, and deserves to be taken seriously.
