Welcome to MSA Education
Male Survivors Aotearoa (MSA) provides a range of education programmes for its peer worker community. In addition to our residential programmes we are developing a series of modular online learning programmes to improve peer worker understanding of key peer support policies and practices.

All of our programmes are intended to be available to people working with MSA or our Member Organisations (MMO). Our residential programmes are available on application, subject to programme demand and course schedules. Our online programmes are available on demand and free of charge, subject to approval of the relevant MMO manager. These programmes may also be available to external parties on payment of a course fee.
