The ACT RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury) Support Group was established in the 1980s. The name of the group was later changed to the RSI and Overuse Injury Association of the ACT. It is a non-profit organisation providing a comprehensive service that promotes community awareness of overuse disorders and provides assistance to both individuals with overuse disorders and their families.

This collection includes the Support Group’s office policies and procedures, minutes of meetings, and reports. The ACT Heritage Library also holds the organisation’s newsletter RSI News.
