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


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