Those with a history of contact with mental health services have sought representation, support and advocacy for centuries. Service user advocacy groups are varied in nature: from grassroots to national, informal to established, conservative to radical, they reflect the diversity of society.

This exhibition highlights the material culture of some of these groups, and charts the development and impact of their voices, and the challenges they have faced.
