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 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.

SAMSN is a not-for-profit that employs qualified staff who have experience working with male survivors to provide on-going support services through Planned Support, and facilitate support groups and workshops for men, their families, and supporters. SAMSN also offers peer-support to give survivors the opportunity to talk with another survivor who also has direct experience of our services.

All services provided by SAMSN have been developed through collaboration between survivors & professionals and are delivered within a 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.

NOTICE OF CONTINUING SERVICE PROVISION DURING
TEMPORARY OFFICE CLOSURE

SAMSN has been closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and continues to observe the recommendations by NSW Health and the Commonwealth Government. Our first priority is always the safety of our clients and staff.

Although our physical office is now closed, our dedicated team are working remotely by telephone and email to ensure that we can continue to support survivors and our supporters. We are also looking into what other technology we can use to stay connected during this challenging time.

We appreciate your support and understanding and encourage you stay in touch and contact SAMSN for support.
