About Hearing Voices Groups
Since their inception in the late 80s, Hearing Voices Groups have become an established and valuable source of support for people who hear voices, see visions or have other unusual sensory perceptions. They provide a safe space for people to share and find ways of making sense of, and living with, their experiences.
There are over 180 Hearing Voices Groups in the UK, in a range of settings – including charities, user/survivor-led groups, prisons, inpatient units, CAMHS, Early Intervention Services, Forensic settings and community mental health teams. Hearing Voices Networks can be found in over 26 countries across 5 continents (including Uganda, USA, Denmark, Malaysia, Japan and Australia).
