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

Welcome to samsn

All male survivors of child sexual assault should know that the abuse was not their fault and that healing and recovery is possible. Regardless of his ethnicity, sexual orientation, age or religion, any man, including all expressions of male gender identity, can contact SAMSN for support.

SAMSN is a not-for-profit charity that employs qualified staff to provide Planned support and counselling for men, their families, and supporters. SAMSN also runs Eight-week Support Groups and Monthly Drop-in Meetings for men, Supporters & Survivors Workshops as well as workshops and training for service providers.

SAMSN has been developed through collaboration between survivors and professionals and operates 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.

All our services for survivors and supporters are FREE.
