As someone with an adverse childhood who then went on to spend over fifteen years in law enforcement, I am intimately familiar with mental health and domestic violence. While I may have developed a gallows humor in regard to the darker aspects of human nature, rest assured, I take these issues very seriously. Writing has been cathartic for me, hence the reason why I write what I write... But since I do have a platform, I aim to make the most of it.

This is by no means a comprehensive list, but it is a starting point for those who—God forbid—may need it. Or if you know someone else who may need it. These resources are aimed at male victims, specifically, since male rights and advocacy are near and dear to my heart. 


While the focus of the majority of these organizations is on ending domestic violence and abuse, a lot of them could simply be considered "Men's resources" in general. They include a variety of information and ways to assist men in other challenging areas of their life, such as divorce, family court, drug addictions, health, etc.

There are also resources listed specifically for American first responders (police, fire, EMS, and dispatchers). Before I "retired" from law enforcement to write full time, I co-founded a peer support program for my department. We were the first in our county to do so and we served as a model for surrounding agencies, a fact I'm immensely proud of. I know what that job does to people and I know you can come out on the other side.
