This multimedia display allows visitors to hear the voices of current and former staff and volunteers of groundbreaking feminist mental health service, the Bristol Crisis Service for Women. Now known as Self Injury Support, this pioneering group was started in the back of a charity shop in Easton as a feminist collective in 1986. Its goals were to listen to, support, and amplify the voices of women using self injury to cope with their experience of trauma. In 2022, as part of an oral history project funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Self Injury Support interviewed 22 former and current staff and volunteers about their experiences running the groundbreaking listening service. You can read and hear what they said in this fascinating exhibition.
