Mid-Island Men Services

Mid-Island Men Services is a life-changing group that supports men to move beyond abusive behaviours and to build healthy relationships.This is a 30 hour program for men who want to stop being abusive and learn ways to build relationships based on equality and mutual respect.

You may want to consider participating if you are a man who is at risk, or has a history of abusing others; or if you want to address power and abuse in relationships. 

The goals of the program:

– to help men establish relationships based upon safety, equality and respect rather than violence and abuse;
to prioritize the safety of the victim of abuse;
– to assist men in taking responsibility for stopping their abusive behaviours;
– & to assist men in building the relationships they prefer with their partners, children and other men.

Testimonial from a past participant:

“I have learned that I wasn’t alone in this, others had trouble and we have helped each other get through what was needed to be done. In the Program we expressed feelings, let go of some past bad behaviors, and had points of view shared from the other side of situations.  Glad to meet new people and start a new better beginning.”
