Royal Commission

MensLine Australia is a support service for people affected by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sex Abuse. Making contact with the Commission can be very challenging for survivors. It may be the first time you have told anyone about the abuse, or it may bring back memories which are very hard to deal with. 

Perhaps you are considering contacting the Commission but are unsure about taking the next step. If you or someone you know needs help to tell your story or to cope with the feelings you are experiencing, our counsellors can support you.
