Our Minds Our Histories

In the summer of 2012 St Anne’s Community Services were awarded a grant by the Heritage Lottery Fund to get the project ‘Our Minds Our Histories’ off the ground.

The purpose of the project was to involve clients in their local history and set up an exhibition that not only looked at the history of mental health in Huddersfield but that also used ‘real histories’ of the people who have experienced mental health issues.

To that end they have created an exhibition which talks about their experiences and this exhibition will be used to inform the people of Kirklees and give them an insight into their local history.

The project will have a legacy and will have space in local museums and be used to help train staff and volunteers and tour Kirklees. This project could not have been realised without the hard work and dedication of the staff and clients of St Anne’s and the support and skill of the teaching staff and students at the University of Huddersfield history department.
