The Hearing Voices approach offers a non-pathologizing, open way of understanding and supporting people through the experience of hearing voices. It assumes that hearing voices (as well as seeing visions and other sensory experiences) can be a normal part of human experience with a variety of meanings for people. Hearing Voices support groups are widely available throughout the United Kingdom and many other countries and are just taking hold in the United States.
To raise awareness of voice hearing, visions, tactile sensations and other sensory experiences
To give men women and children who have these experiences an opportunity to talk freely about this together
To support anyone with these experiences seeking to understand, learn and grow from them in their own way
