Everyone has a mental health, just in the same way that everyone has a physical health. Sometimes a person’s mental health can be poor and sometimes it can be good.
There is enough research and evidence to suggest that everyone who has experienced sexual abuse, rape or sexual violation will experience various levels of poor and good mental health. Over the years, here at Survivors Manchester, we have talked with hundreds of men who have had both difficulties and found a way to manage and move forward from their mental health issues, a legacy of the impact of the sexual abuse.
We have also built a great Self Help Resource, thanks to NHS England; Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust, and Jam Creative where you can download a wide range of guides dealing with a range of issues. Each guide is also accompanied by a audio version. Its an amazing resource and we want you to have access to it, which you can do by clicking here.
