LHVN Network Meetings
When the London Hearing Voices Network was set up (fifteen years ago) Network Meetings were conceived as peer support for Hearing Voices group facilitators exclusively. Discussion revolved around specific difficulties, or triumphs, in the day-to-day facilitating roles of the facilitators attending.
Since then, the format has evolved. We are now open to anyone interested, and discussions tend to be more focused on the matter presented by the speaker. This meeting (23rd March) will be structured with the speaker first, followed by small group discussions in break-out rooms.
