MARS - Men Affected by Rape & Sexual Assult
The group is open to all adult men 16 years and older who identify with a past history of rape or sexual abuse. The group caters for heterosexual, bisexual, homosexual, transgender and men of unresolved sexuality and is held in Brisbane.
A facilitator participates in a safety role and provides support and guidance when necessary.
The group has a resolution focus and aims to provide relief for participants by supporting them to make their own decisions about how to achieve resolution.
The group accepts new participants every three months, usually sometime during January, April, July and October. As exact start dates vary from year to year, please register via the Expression of Interest form on the MARS Australia website.
