Website: ** UK-wide membership charity led by volunteers who have lived-experience of dissociative identity disorder (previously known as ‘multiple personality disorder’) or other childhood-trauma-related complex dissociative condition with a similar presentation (e.g.
type 1 dissociative disorder not otherwise specified).
In the case of the latter we will seek to signpost them to appropriate services.
** PODS works to make recovery from dissociative disorders a reality through training, informing and supporting.
We welcome you to participate and contribute to our thriving and active message board and chat rooms, which aim to provide peer support and foster healing.
We have had over a thousand men register at Pandy's, many of whom feel they have benefited from the support, guidance and friendship offered to them from both male and female survivors alike.
We provide various types of support services and information for parents, carers and professionals dealing with child sexual abuse.
Website: ** Confidential emotional support to children, young adults and adults by telephone, email and post.
I am always amazed at the similarities between male and females in how they heal from their past abuse.""Male survivors, or prospective male survivors need to above all be assured that they won't be laughed at, minimised or told to toughen up (my biggest hurdle).
As with anyone, they need to know that what happened to them was not there fault and that there was nothing they could have done to stop it.""I discovered Pandy's only a few weeks ago.
