Male Survivors of Domestic Abuse Support Group launches in Cork

Male Survivors of Domestic Abuse Support Group launches in Cork

Open Doors is launching its first group therapy to help men experiencing domestic abuse now or in the past. Join us for support!

Who is it for?

If you’re a man experiencing domestic or family violence, you need to know: you are not alone. Husbands, partners, sons, fathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers, nephews, friends, neighbours and colleagues from all walks of life and all ages can be affected.

You may feel powerless, worthless, depressed, lonely and isolated. Sometimes guilt, shame and despair are present. You may have problems with sleep or concentrate on tasks at work.

Remember that no one deserves violence. Domestic and family violence is against the law and is a crime. It’s not your fault and you’re not to blame for what is happening.

Join our support group!

Join our group therapy to start your recovery. We provide a safe and confidential space for you to talk about your experiences. More information about group therapy here.
