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.
MSSAT Christchurch offers one to one, peer and group support for survivors and their significant others. Group support and the validation from other men is very empowering for recovering survivors. As abuse usually takes place in isolation healing works well with others.
