Men can be survivors of domestic violence too

If you are a man experiencing abuse, you are not alone. 1 in 9 men in the U.S. have experienced sexual violence, physical violence, or stalking by an intimate partner and suffered significant impacts or injury.1

We know how difficult it can be to find support as a man experiencing violence and abuse in an intimate relationship. Many men report that:

  • There are limited community resources for male survivors of domestic violence.
  • They’ve been told to “suck it up” or deal with the abuse because they’re a man.
  • They’re often not believed when they report abuse to police, friends, or family members.
