1 in 6 men will experience sexual violence in their lifetime.
Through project funding from the Ministry of Attorney General, SACHA is able to offer men individual and group face to face counselling as well as immediate support though SACHA’s 24 Hour Support Line.
The pilot project started in September 2011 and has been extended until 2017.
SACHA also offers training to workplaces and helping professionals on a wide range of topics including supporting survivors, dynamics of sexual assault and unique barriers and issues that male survivors experience.
Anyone interested in accessing counselling at SACHA, would like a poster, or would like to book a SACHA presenter can call SACHA’s office at 905.525.4573.
Currently SACHA is able to offer counselling in English and Spanish and make use of interpreters in other languages, including ASL.
