Men Matter

Men Matter is a male centered group program being offered for male survivors of sexual abuse in PEI. The program is free of charge, and each group is led by two professional facilitators.

The program is offered in two Phases.

Phase 1
Phase I is a 10-session/10-week group program. Its purpose is to prepare men for their journey of trauma recovery, by learning more about the impacts of abuse and expanding coping skills. Group members are not required to divulge personal information to the group. Each group will have between 6-8 participants.

Phase 2
After completing Phase 1, men are invited to participate in Phase 2 group work. This group program is offered in 8 week cycles, and men can remain in the group for up to two years. While participating, individual counselling is highly recommended.

Before participating we would like to meet with you to answer any questions you may have and to determine if this is the right choice for you.

Call or text the Counselling Request Line 902-368-8055 and ask to be contacted about Men Matter.

PEIRSAC is seeking an individual with a Master’s degree in social work, counselling psychology, or similar, with current good standing with a PEI professional regulator. The ideal incumbent will have at least three years of trauma-focused counselling with Indigenous (preferably Mi’kmaq) clients, and therefore knows the history and traumatic intergenerational impacts of colonization, including (but not limited to) residential schools, the sixties scoop, and murdered and missing Indigenous women and girls.
