FaceBook Groups

Processing HM FaceBook Group
Private FaceBook group for HM alumni to ‘process’ the revelation of sexual abuse at Horace Mann…. As a private FaceBook group, members are screened.  Use this link to request membership or email HoraceMannSurvivor@gmail.com for assistance.

HM Discussion FaceBook Group
HM Discussion differs from Processing HM in that its guidelines are geared to creating a ‘safe’ environment for those who have suffered childhood sexual abuse. While not all group members are abuse survivors, the group is moderated and discussion focuses on ‘healing’.  HM Discussion members are primarily alumni, but also include loved ones & those who have expertise/experiences helpful to survivors.  To join, request membership at HM Discussion Group or email HoraceMannSurvivor@gmail.com for assistance.

We are also compiling a list of general information about sexual abuse that may be helpful.
