About The Conference:

  • Between 3 and 10% of people in prison hear voices.
  • In prison, voice-hearing is linked with self harm and 1 in 5 self-inflicted deaths
  • People can, and do, find ways of coping with overwhelming voices

This conference explores ways we can support people who hear voices whilst involved with the criminal justic system – reducing risk and promoting recovery. Hear from experts by experience and profession, including: Facilitators from HMP Holloway, Wandsworth, Pentonville & Bronzefield, the Mind in Camden Prison Project Team, Jacqui Dillon, Dr. Dave Harper, MAC UK & more.

  • Setting up safe Hearing Voices Groups in prison
