1 in 6 of men have been sexually abused before the age of 18. 95% of the time, the child knew and trusted his pedophile. Therefore, most adult male survivors of childhood sexual abuse (AMS of CSA) have experienced physical rape and psychological terrorism. Many attempt to self-medicate through addictions to substances, sex, violence, work and finally - suicide.
It's time to heal these valiant survivors! Thank you for your interest.
Our goals are: HEAR - Healing; Education (public & healthcare professionals); Advocacy; and Research.
cc4ms needs a Clinical Care Coordinator to interview survivors, arrange treatment and monitor the progress.
While we also help individual independent survivors, we have formed partnerships with 16 service agencies - Southern Alberta HIV Clinic, AIDS Calgary, Simon House, Fresh START, 1835, John Howard Society, The Distress Centre, Jewish Family Services, CMHA - Canadian Mental Health Association, AHS's mental health clinics and the Wellness Centres at our post-secondary institutions.
The cost for one session is $150. Your donation, whether it be singular or monthly, will help a survivor achieve healing. Thank you!!
