CELEBRATING A WEEKEND OF RECOVERY MILESTONE!
This November, MenHealing will be conducting our 90th Weekend of Recovery! We are proud to be celebrating 20 years of the WOR program this year! This 90th WOR will be our last for 2021 and conducted virtually.
Registration closes at the end of the day on October 22. A limited number of spaces remain available.
We welcome financial donations from supporters like YOU in honor of this WOR milestone.
A yearlong recurring donation of $25/month from three supporters or $10/month from eight supporters will pay the entire cost for one male survivor to attend a WOR in 2022.
EXPANSION OF THE MENHEALING BLOG
As we continue to expand our outreach, be sure to check out our Beyond Survival: Still We Rise blog on our website. There you will find interviews, stories, songs, and poems from male survivors in the MenHealing community. Watch each week for a new post.
This week will feature a song recommended by a survivor as a part of the "Healing Music" series. The following week will include the second installment in the "Kevin's Journey" series, monthly reflections on the healing journey by Kevin Flood.

Our 10/3 Live Launch Webinar was a success, with four distinct and powerful artistic expressions of support for the work of MenHealing. Much appreciation to Peitao Zhu for his uplifting piano recital; the Columbus Gay Men’s Chorus for their inspiring musical pieces; to the twelve trans and nonbinary performers in the Simone Farro Dance Collective for their riveting movements; and to Michael Guinn for his emotional poetry. If you missed the 10/3 event, you can still watch the seventy-five minute video here.
The first of the twelve-part Instagram Live Series “Expanding Men’s Healing from Sexual Victimization” began on 10/5. This series, hosted by Richard Smith, will continue every Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET / 4 p.m. PT through the end of the year. Click the image below to watch the first episode.
