Our team of specialist staff have had training in working with men who have been raped or sexually abused.
While CSASS focuses on the needs and rights of women, men also experience sexual abuse. The impact of sexual violence on the lives of men is devastating. We can help you.
1 in 6 men have been targets of rape or sexual assault.
Adults who have been raped often choose not to talk about the offences, let alone report them. For lots of reasons, men are more likely to keep it a secret than women.
Research shows some common effects men might experience are thoughts and feelings of anger, shame, guilt, numbness, or flashbacks, nightmares, and physical and mental health problems.
Men can feel trapped and isolated by misinformation about male sexual abuse and rape, like the myth that ‘men can’t be raped’, and fears that sexual abuse can turn you into an abuser. SurvivorsUK has an excellent page where you can read about the myths and realities of male sexual abuse.
Our team of specialist staff have had training to support men who have been raped or sexually abused.
