Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP) is 99.9% comprised of volunteers – survivors and supporters – who run and attend support group meetings, answer the Helpline, meet one on one with survivors, pick up phone calls in the middle of the night, and answer dozens of emails a week from victims who need help. These are volunteers. They pay their own expenses. They do what they do to help survivors and expose abusers. They want to end the cycle of abuse. The volunteers at SNAP are the heart and soul of the organization. We are not therapists. We are peers. We help victims find good reputable therapists. We encourage all crime victims to report to law enforcement, including civil attorneys who are qualified to advise them of their legal rights. We do this because of our passion for justice and child safety. And our thousands of volunteers donate their time, talent and resources to SNAP.
The LGBTQ Therapists Guild is a Utah-based, grassroots organization of licensed mental-health professionals and students-in-training. Members meet monthly for consultation and education regarding mental-health concerns of sexual and gender minorities. We welcome members of any sexual orientation.
