Prepared by: The National Men's Resource Center
If you would like assistance on some matter, check the front of your phone book. If you have access to a computer at home, through work or your local library or cyber café, our web page (www.menstuff.org) has thousands of resources for men and a listing of men's councils and centers, around the country. Also, your local Self-Help organization,YMCA, church or Jewish Community Center may be of help. (WARNING: If you are a man, be aware of any state laws that require social services, hotlines, therapists, etc. to report something that you might say around abuse, neglect, violence, etc. your own or someone else's! Do this before discussing ANYTHING with ANYONE around these subjects.) Some of the services offered in your local community may include:
