Parental Alienation is an insidious bi product of our current family court system. Many men (and some women) are finding themselves in extraordinarily difficult situations fighting for access to children amongst vindictive ex partners who are determined to see their partner removed from their children’s lives, irrespective of evidence or proof of any form of abuse. The Eeny Meeny Miney Mo Foundation was established as a resource and guide for men and women who have found themselves as targets for this abuse.

Domestic Violence is an issue that affects both men and women, and of course children in Australia. According to Australian Bureau of Statistics at least 15,367 men experienced domestic abuse in Australia which is roughly 1 in 3 of all Australians who reported in that year. This is a significant number of men and there are currently no government funded services for them.

There are a number of private practitioners who specifically help men, that can help you through what can be a lonely and difficult time. Support is available thorough contacting Jasmin via the contact form  or you can connect with 1 in 3 who also list private counselling practitioners. One In Three is dedicated to raising awareness for male victims of domestic violence. There website is an invaluable and comprehensive resource and you can find factual information from the Australian Bureau of Statistics and Australian Institute of Criminology

Sexual Assault & Abuse Against Men is something little talked about and an issue that there is little recognition for. In 2014 I traveled to New Jersey to attend the Male Survivor Conference and to network with other professionals in the field of helping men recover from sexual abuse. Rape, sexual assault and sexual abuse of men can occur in childhood or adulthood and the perpetrator can be both male and female. While we are beginning to see more acceptance of this, there is still little help here in Australia. However our networks are growing and the scope for healing spaces for men are slowly coming to the fore. If you are a survivor, please connect with me and I will endeavour to find the right resources for you.
