Operation Emotion is a Plymouth based charity that provides services for adult male survivors of sexual abuse, linking with specialist organisations where appropriate.
As a trauma led service we specialise in group work offering a range of self help initiatives and educational programmes that enable men to engage in a process of recovery.
We never ask what is wrong with someone but instead what happened to them. We help men to come to terms with their own experiences and play an active role in helping other men who have been similarly affected by sexual abuse. We also work with other agencies to promote best practice leading to an improvement in services.
What to do next
We know that living with the effects of sexual abuse is not easy. It can also be just as difficult to take that first step to find the service that may be right for you. However it doesn't have to be this way, as you don't have to live a life dominated by your past experiences of sexual abuse.
Speak to us confidentially
You can do this by telephone, text or email. We will then explain a bit more about what we offer as an organisation and you can ask any questions you may have. Then you can have time to think about what has been said and decide what you would like to do next. You will also have plenty of time to look through the rest of the website and its media and resources.
The next step
Then if you are keen to take the next step, simply call us back and we will arrange to meet up - and don't worry you will never be asked to tell your story.
We can meet you in a public place like a coffee bar, to talk about a way forward. We can meet you in a location that feels safe for you.
If you would like a friend or partner to accompany you then this is no problem.
Operation Emotion is keen to challenge attitudes about sexual abuse and we produce various educational films that challenge mythology, stereotypes and misinformation about sexual abuse.
