Support for Male Survivors
Men can be survivors of domestic violence, too.
If you are a man and are being abused, 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:
- Community resources are limited for male survivors of domestic violence;
- They are told to “suck it up” or deal with the abuse because they’re a man; or
- They are often not believed when they report the abuse to police or a friend or family member.
LifeWire is here to help all men experiencing domestic violence – whether you are gay, straight or transgender.
At LifeWire, male survivors can access all of the same services that females can, including emergency shelter, housing services, support group, one-on-one counseling and legal advocacy.
If you or someone you know is being abused, call our 24-Hour Helpline at 425-746-1940 to speak with a trained advocate or send us a message on our Get Help page.
