It was only through hearing other men tell their stories that our founder was able to start his own healing journey, it told him that despite the message society told us, that only girls are victims, he could be a victim. His life was a dysfunctional one, he was a bottle-a-day alcoholic, had suicidal thoughts every day, and suffered depression. He could not understand why he was always so angry and had these bouts of rage. Society told him that he was an abusive man, no one told him that he was a victim, seeking for healing.
