The app provides practical resources and suggestions that men who have been sexually abused can make use of. The information and resources draw upon research evidence and practice knowledge, in order to offer suggestions that can enhance well-being and help better manage difficulties. The app is designed to be useful for partners, family members, friends, and health care professionals—for anyone looking to enhance their understanding and personal well-being. http://www.livingwell.org.au/get-support/living-well-app/
Living well: A guide for men: This 60 page book has been written to provide men with some practical information and support about dealing with sexual abuse and its effects. We have tried to keep it manageable, both in terms of its size and level of detail. Most of all, we hope that it offers some useful ideas about taking care of yourself. http://www.livingwell.org.au/get-support/living-well-services/living-well-a-guide-for-men/
