Siren Benefit Gig for Threshold Women’s Counselling
Siren are a 1980s feminist new wave punk band who are holding a benefit gig in support of BHT's Threshold Women's Counselling service.
The gig takes place on Tuesday 21 November from 7.30pm at Sallis Benney, University of Brighton, Grand Parade, Brighton. Tickets are £10 or £5 concessions.
Siren’s songs reflect the politics of the 80s, still relevant today, with visual images of time. Come along for a blast of nostalgia, great politics and foot-tapping music.
All proceeds will go towards BHT's Threshold Women's Counselling service, which provides support to women with a wide range of issues, including anxiety, depression, self-harm, post-traumatic stress, chronic low self-esteem, suicidal thoughts, parenting issues, birth trauma and perinatal depression.
Feedback from women who have previously accessed Threshold:
…it’s been a safe environment to acknowledge my feelings, to cry and not feel overwhelmed. To embrace who I am and find a different way to react in different situations in front of and towards my children…
Such dedicated non-judgemental, patient support. Thank you for holding the therapeutic space when it’s been dark and frightening. The service is brilliant and I’m very grateful to have had the opportunity to start my new journey in such a safe space. Thank you.
…has helped me to help myself and grow in self confidence. In turn, I have been able to support one daughter through depression and the other to deal with health and anxiety…
I was too scared to leave the house. I hadn’t left in years. My wildest expectations have been met… I’m alive!
