Living Well (Australia)

At Living Well, we understand that because of the stigma and shame associated with sexual abuse, many people will not identify publicly or privately as victims/survivors of sexual violence and be able to access specialist support. We also know that many of those who have been sexually assaulted face multiple challenges in their lives. This drives our commitment to share resources that enhance individual and community capacity to address sexual violence and navigate life’s challenges as widely as possible.

Share Learning: This video and painting are part of a collection of resources developed in partnership with the Brisbane Didgeri Group and Natjul Performing Arts to enhance support for male victims of sexual violence, for partners, families and communities. Other videos in this series are ‘Support: Contributions to healing’ and ‘No More Silence: It’s never too late to start healing.
