. Through text and audio clips they tell the history of a pioneering Bristol mental health charity in its own words. Visitors will be able to recreate the experience of volunteering on the Bristol Crisis Service for Women helpline by taking a seat at the replica helpline desk and scanning QR codes to hear the women who ran the service share their memories.
For the last two years Self Injury Support, formerly known as Bristol Crisis Service for Women, has been interviewing former staff and a volunteers for its project Women Listening to Women: an oral history of Bristol Crisis Service for Women. Using excerpts from these interviews it has created several historical resources. Alongside the two touring exhibitions, the project has produced three podcasts, an illustrated booklet about the history and impact of Bristol Crisis Service for Women and a website www.womenlisteningtowomen.org.uk with links to all of the above and the interviews themselves.
To mark the arrival of the exhibitions made possible by The National Lottery Heritage Fund, Glenside Hospital Museum will be offering National Lottery players free entry on Saturday 19th March to coincide with the start of National Lottery Open Week.
