We are a community group for people who have personal experience of self harm and for anyone interested in looking after their wellbeing. There are lots of ways you can get involved in SISH.
Do you have personal past or current experience of self harm?
Feedback about our support: We value the experiences of individuals who have used self injury in the past or currently to help us to provide support that makes a positive difference. To give us your feedback on any of our groups, courses or workshops and for any suggestions for other things we could be offering please do Contact us
Giving people who self harm a voice: We also hope to be a voice for local people who self harm about how to improve the services they have contact with. If you want to be on our confidential email data base of contacts to ask your views or to get you involved in any local or national research we sometimes get asked to do, please Contact us
The SISH Involvement Group would also like to invite anyone with lived experience of self harm to come along to our monthly involvement meetings. We hope to be a voice for local people with lived experience of self harm about how to improve the services they have contact with. SISH recently conducted research into people’s experiences of Bristol A&E services and are working to implement the recommendations that came out of the research. The friendly group meets on a Wednesday evening once a month. Please Contact us for further information or to come along, you would be most welcome.
