Ammach – Anomalous Mind Management Abductee Contactee Helpline – gives support and counselling to those who believe they have had extra-terrestrial contact.
It was set up in 2011 to help people unfortunate enough to have had a very close encounter with an alien. They get up to five calls a week and 25 emails, the Mirror reported.
Among them is a woman who says aliens fitted implants to monitor her, a man who visits his alien wife and child several times a year, and a woman who was abducted more than 1,000 times.
At the end of the helpline Ammach co-founders Joanne Summerscales and Miles Johnston offer emotional support to traumatised “abducted” people.
Joanne and Miles set up and funded Ammach after meeting at a UFO conference.
They hold meetings, workshops and a conference for people to meet, swap encounter tales and have their testimony videoed and posted online to encourage others to come forward.
