It’s OK to ask for and accept help from other people, and to offer and give help to other people who need it too. Men who have had unwanted or abusive sexual experiences sometimes struggle to do things to care for themselves. Throughout this booklet, we want to remind you that you deserve to take care of yourself and to live a fulfilling life.
Our hope is this booklet will provide some practical advice about ‘living well’. What that means will be different to each person, but hopefully some of the ideas here will be of use to you. Many of the ideas here could be helpful ideas for anyone. Other ideas are more specific suggestions about dealing with the problems that unwanted or abusive sexual experiences can bring into men’s lives.
