Abstract (Summary)

There is a big push for the U.S. Department of Defense to address Military Sexual Trauma (MST). Research indicates that approximately 32,000 males reported MST. Since males reporting MST is only 1%, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs did not see a concern to help the male victims. One can argue that men who are MST survivors experience more intense psychological trauma than their women counterparts. The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal to potentially seek funds for a program which specifically targets twenty male survivors of MST. The program aims to help male victims return to society and have a productive life while in recovery from their trauma.

The Robert R. McCormick Foundation was identified as a potential funding source for the proposed project. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
