SISH stands for ‘self injury self help’, and are a Bristol based community organisation, who for 15 years, have been running self help support groups for people who self injure.
The original founders of the group wanted to create a safe space to talk about their self harm, and offer and receive support from each other that was non-judgemental and accepting.
The groups have run with these core principles ever since, and are one of the few self injury self help groups in the country.
