We’re launching a new poster today!
1 in 6 men will experience sexual violence in their lifetime.
The pilot project started in September 2011 and has been extended until March 2015.
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. SACHA has partnered with the Centre de Santé Communautaire de Hamilton/Niagara and the Hamilton Regional Indian Centre to offer culturally-appropriate services for French-speaking and Aboriginal/First Nations men.
“This is a huge gain in our community. SACHA has been serving men on our Support Line for many years, but being able to offer face-to-face counselling for male survivors makes a big difference in their lives”, says Lenore Lukasik-Foss, Director at SACHA.
All of SACHA’s services are free.
