Bristol Crisis Service for Women have carried out research into the experiences and needs of women who self-injure. This work has helped people get a better understanding of self-injury and find the best ways of working with people who self-injure.
Our latest research project is called "Hidden Pain? Self-injury and people with learning disabilities". This project looked at the perspectives of people with learning disabilities who self-injure. This is the first time a study has actually asked people with learning disabilities throughout the UK about their own understandings of their self-injury and what would help them.
