Talk with a mate who can relate

We are Australia’s leading organisation for male survivors of child sexual abuse and their supporters.

Welcome to samsn

Any man who is struggling from the impacts of child sexual assault should know the abuse 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.

 SAMSN is a not-for-profit charity that employs qualified staff who have experience working with male survivors to provide on-going support services and peer-support services through Planned Support, and facilitate support groups and workshops for men, their families, and supporters.

 All services provided by SAMSN have been developed through collaboration between survivors and professionals and are delivered within a specialist trauma-informed framework.

 SAMSN works to break down the stigma and myths associated with childhood sexual abuse by raising public awareness, up-skilling frontline service providers and advocating for the implementation of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse recommendations.

All our services for survivors and supporters are FREE.
