To MenHealing Weekends of Recovery Alumni, Friends, and Supporters
JOIN OUR SUMMER WEBINAR ON JULY 20TH
WHO’S AFRAID OF THE BIG BAD WOLF? MenHealing’s new virtual conversation series that explores, embraces, and celebrates the issues being silenced.
Our first webinar in this new series, LET’S SAY GAY!, will focus on the intersectionality of trauma and LGBTQ identities.
Lisa Diamond(Renowned psychologist, gender studies researcher, and feminist) will guide us through an exploration of the increased trauma experience when a male survivor of sexual victimization is additionally marginalized due to being GBTQ. Three male survivors will respond to Lisa’s presentation for a facilitated discussion and audience Q&A. A brief artistic interlude will enhance our time for this virtual gathering. We invite each of YOU to join us for this dynamic 90-minute event on July 20th.
All proceeds for this event will support direct services offered by MenHealing.

2023 LEVEL 1 WEEKEND OF RECOVERY REGISTRATION REMAINS OPEN – JOIN US AS WE CONTINUE BEYOND OUR 100th GATHERING
Registration remains open for our 2023 Level 1 Weekend of Recovery at Alta, UT. We invite survivors who have never experienced a WOR at this spectacular venue to consider joining us for our farewell visit to the Alta Lodge. Scheduling and logistical changes at the Lodge necessitate that this year’s event will be our final WOR to be conducted at this location.
Our next Level 1 WOR has already been scheduled at Hope Springs, OH during October 2024. This will ensure uninterrupted access for these inspiring gatherings that allow male survivors to end isolation, make connections, and create community.
The Pay What You Can Afford WOR fee structure is one example of how MenHealing applies donor contributions to increase accessibility for healing resources.
RESEARCH STUDY SEEKING SURVIVORS TO PARTICIPATE
Dr. Scott Easton (licensed master’s level social work (LMSW) and an Associate Professor at the Boston College School of Social Work) is conducting a study on the health and well-being of male survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Participants will be asked to complete a one-time, anonymous online survey. There is no compensation for taking part in the study. However, participants are eligible for a raffle of a $100 electronic gift card.
