SAMSN provides support to adult male survivors of child sexual abuse and their families.
People sometimes forget that abused children grow up and that survivors of sexual abuse often struggle and may need help and your understanding.
The five year Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse clearly showed that there is a dearth of specialist services for men. SAMSN is one of only a couple of services in Australia dedicated to helping male victims of child sexual abuse and their supporters.
Our vision is a society in which male survivors struggling with the adverse effects of childhood sexual abuse can easily access support and find understanding and acceptance.
Our mission is to build a support network that gives voice and agency to male survivors across Australia.
Any man who has suffered from the effects of child sexual assault should know it was not his fault and that healing and recovery is possible. Regardless of his ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, or religion any man can contact SAMSN for support.
