Groups

Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse Trust (MSSAT) started in 1991 in Christchurch when a client asked his Counsellor how he could go about meeting other men who had experienced similar childhood trauma. Together they formed a support group and in 1997 members of that group registered MSSAT as a Charitable Trust.

Belonging, acceptance and identifying with other men through peer support can help build more caring and loving relationships, families and communities. When the Trust was founded in the Waikato we focused on an intensive support model. Both groups are held on our premises

Tuesday Meeting for Male Support Services

In this group we aim to provide a safe, comfortable space where men can feel respected and valued. Encouraging each other to share life experiences and learn from each other. Confidentiality is paramount and there is no expectation to contribute. We acknowledge that all our journeys are unique and the things which we have learned may hold the key for someone else to learn as well. We aim to collaboratively build a space which provides Hope, Insipiration and Motivation to move forward to a better tomorrow.

Tuesday 7-9pm (unless otherwise advised)

Wednesday Meeting for Male Support Services

We have two excellent facilitators organising the group which is open to all who feel they may benefit from it. The group provides a safe and confidential place for listening and speaking those moments in life that have significantly impacted on us, our families and others. After the often, isolating impacts of abuse, other survivors can help ease and understand the journey.

Wednesday from 7 - 9 pm (unless otherwise advised).
Transport can be provided
Meal provided

You can start at any stage of your journey but it is preferred that you have some grounding first for safety. We at Male Support Services have people available if you are not already in counselling. If you feel that Wednesday night may benefit you call Mike on 0800 677 289.
