Support group for men who’ve experienced intimate partner abuse, violence or trauma
We understand men who’ve been in abusive relationships need a safe and compassionate environment to begin the process of healing. Our highest priority is ensuring the group environment is safe, non-judgmental and compassionate for all men, and male identified people, attending regardless of sexual orientation, identification, religion, race, colour, background or experiences.
The goals of the group are:
To provide group members with support from others who are going through or have gone through categorically similar experiences.
To acquire the skills, coping mechanisms, and resources to get you through this difficult time.
To begin the recovery process, to heal, and regain control in your life – become empowered.
To provide a safe and confidential space where you can be heard in a compassionate, empathetic, and non-judgmental environment.
To meet with others who understand your experiences because they have traveled down the same path.
To provide connection to others who may have felt isolated and alone.
If you feel diminished in any of your intimate/family relationships, think you might have been in an abusive situation or have experienced violence please contact us – we can help.
