Other Resource Lists 

(While I tried to include the most helpful resources I could here (i.e., resources that lend themselves to one-on-one communication, individual reading, etc.), there are plenty of other great resources, including regional resources, listed in these links. Some of the resources are specific to men and others aren’t, but they are all helpful for male survivors.)

**Husband Battering: Men and Domestic Violence

**Help for Battered Men: Online Resources

**Help for Battered Men: National and International Resources

**Help for Guys: Help for Victims (some resources for men, many general resources)

I have checked over these to the best of my ability to make sure they are trans-friendly, but if anyone has had any negative experiences with these resources, please tell us!

Also, I tried to be thorough with the tags, but please say something if we need to tag this as anything else.
