Hearing Voices Mailing List
This group is for people who hear, or who have heard voices. We can share support, strategies for living with voices, and other ideas. VoiceSupporters is also open to people who hear voices. You are more than welcome to join both groups.
I want to create an atmosphere where people who hear voices can discuss this freely and openly. Where we can talk about our coping strategies - what works and what doesn't, discuss whether or not we want to use medication, discuss psychiatry honestly and share our concerns.
Labels often aren't helpful when it comes to "mental health problems". Many people find that if their experiences are labelled as mental illness, this makes them feel worse, especially with a diagnosis of schizophrenia which is often seen as a chronic incurable disease. At Voice-hearers we can abandon the labels given to us by doctors, and create our own names for ourselves - without the stigma of psychiatric labelling attached.
This group is only for people who hear or have heard voices. However, if you are a carer/friend/family member or professional and you are interested in hearing voices issues, you can join the Voicesupporters group.
The Voice-Hearers group would also like to thank Water Gypsy who designed the incredible logo for the group.
