A lily or a rose?Top Rated Welcome to my site
I am a survivor of abuse and bullying and my aim is to build a site which can be used as a resource for people dealing with mental health, bullying and abuse/trauma issues. It is also for people who would like to find out more - perhaps to help a family member or friend who is dealing with issues such as these. I just want to make a place where people can find friendship, support and understanding when they feel like no one cares or wants to listen. I hope that this can be a way for me to let out my feelings and begin to heal and to help others with my own experiences along the way.
Another aim of my website is to provide a place where people can share their creative side. Poetry, stories, drawings - anything goes. Many of my pages will be based around poems I have written, as this one is, and I have a page where people can share their own poetry and writings with others. Reading other people's stories and poetry can be very helpful for some people as it just helps them to feel that little bit less alone. Please send me anything you feel you would like to share and see up on my site, I really love reading other people's poetry and writings. http://webspace.webring.com/people/ng/gold_blood/SupportNetworking.html -

Adult Survivors of Child AbuseTop Rated Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (ASCA) is an individual and group support program for adult survivors of physical, sexual, and/or emotional child abuse or neglect.
ASCA's StepWork (21 steps) is a statement of the tasks and issues that most adult survivors face during their recovery from child abuse. Unlike some self-help programs, ASCA does not require that participants work the steps - although you may choose to do so - or that the steps be worked in a linear order. StepWork is a process whereby you concentrate on one particular step at a time in a given recovery program.
The Morris Center's "Survivor to Thriver" manual (a 115 page guidebook for ASCA participants, as well as for any survivor of physical, sexual and/or emotional child abuse or neglect) and all ASCA materials are available free to download. http://www.ascasupport.org/ -

Blain Nelson's Abuse PagesTop Rated Offers a load of information and resources on domestic violence and other types of abuse, although it's emphasis seems to be on the former. I liked it because it was written from the side of a former abuser, and so has a lot to say to those who may also be abusing their significant others and suggestions about how and where to get help. Could better present the information it has to offer, and check out a few broken links, but otherwise a top-notch resource. http://www.blainn.com/abuse/ -

Acquaintance Rape: A Matter of Consent by Dr. Amy Menna The title of this article is "Acquaintance Rape: A Matter of Consent" by Dr. Amy Menna.
Rape. It is a powerful word for a power hungry act. It breeds fear and in many cases, it breeds silence. It is important that this silence be broken, and survivors be heard. By doing so, we break the grasp that rape has upon so many. The aftermath can be immense. The journey to heal may be terrifying; the steps, long and tedious. By building a bridge of awareness and empowerment, woman and men who have experienced rape can be healed and heard http://www.giftfromwithin.org/html/acquaintance_rape.html -

Silence Speaks Violence shapes the lives, experiences, and dreams of countless adults and children each year. In the case of people of color, lesbian/gay/bisexual/ transgender individuals, and youth, this violence can be compounded by experiences of racism; homo/transphobia; and ageism and insensitivity to youth culture.
As a project of the Center for Digital Storytelling, we use participatory media, popular education, and testimonio practices to support the telling and witnessing of stories that all too often remain unspoken and unheard. With the permission of storytellers and project partners, stories are shared in local communities and globally through broadcast or social media outlets, as strategic tools for training, grassroots organizing, and policy advocacy to promote dignity and justice. http://www.silencespeaks.org/ -

Survivor MattersTop Rated Survivor Matters has been created by survivors for survivors, to enable survivors to discuss their journeys and issues and to gain support from each other.
The Survivor Matters message board aims to provide a safe place for survivors and the family and friends of survivors to discuss issues and what they are going through, with people who have been there and understand in a non-judgemental environment.
Although members are at different stages in their journeys, their experiences can help another survivor to understand themselves and what they are going through. http://www.survivormatters.co.nr -
