ABOUT HEARING VOICES GROUPS
Since their inception in the late 80s, Hearing Voices Groups have become an established source of support
for people who hear voices, see visions or have other unusual sensory perceptions. They are a safe space for
people to explore ways of understanding, and living with, the experiences they share.
There are over 150 Hearing Voices Groups in the UK, in a range of settings. Hearing Voices Networks can be found in over 26 countries across 5 continents (including Uganda, USA, Denmark, Palestine, Hong Kong and Australia).
