About Us

Mental Health Support for all Men*

We are here to support to any man*: cis, gay, bi-sexual, trans, non-binary, 2spirit, queer, gender fluid+, who has experienced emotional, physical or sexual trauma in childhood or as an adult.

Why we were created

The Vancouver Island Men’s Therapy Counselling Society (Men’s Therapy Centre) was formed in September, 2003 in response to the closing of the Victoria branch of the BC Society for Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse (BCSMSSA). The Men’s Therapy Centre provides support and/or counseling services to over two hundred masculine identified persons and their family members each year. The Men’s Therapy Centre is becoming increasingly busy and we now run a wide range of therapy programs, educational outreach and an advocacy services.

Our Vision

Men* who experience trauma thrive in a community that understands and empowers them to lead fulfilling lives.

Our Mission

To provide psychological  and practical support to facilitate healing for men, sixteen years and older who experience the effects of trauma.

Our values

Compassion: we care for and understand the  needs of men, who are survivors of trauma, with sympathy and without judgement.
Inclusive: we reduce barriers and provide equitable therapy services for men who have experienced trauma.
Trust: we create safe space that reassures and affirms men through their trauma recovery.
