Here is a free recorded webinar from the Mental Health Technology Transfer Center Network discussing ways in which people may change in positive ways after experiencing psychosis. The webinar also discusses other, non-medical ways of understanding experiences like voices and visions and touches on the Hearing Voices Movement, as well as the psychiatric survivor movement. The presenters emphasize the diversity of experiences and the importance of making space for positive as well as negative feelings about them.
This webinar was organized by PSR BC (Psychosocial Rehabilitation British Columbia)
In honor of mental health week, here’s another hearing voices video pick. This video is one of the one’s we’ve discussed in the Hearing Voices Network Study Club.
Hearing voices can be a scary thing, but did you know it can also provide comfort to some? In this video, from peerstv, host Shannon Eliot chats with Adrian Bernard about the concept of hearing voices – the good, the bad, and what most people don’t know.
In honor of mental health week, we will be posting a selection of videos related to the hearing voices movement. Check out the video below about a Metro Vancouver local and her voice hearing experience, put together by Canada’s The National. Stay tuned for more videos as the week progresses.
We thought we’d start featuring video picks related to the international hearing voices network. Below, you’ll find a TED Talk featuring voice hearer Eleanor Longden. It’s a video we have discussed at our local Hearing Voices Network Study Club. Check out the Vancouver Groups section of this webpage for information on the Study Club. Eleanor is living proof of something many of us have learned through our own experience: that although voices can be difficult for some of us, we can still move forward, experience success and live well. Enjoy 🙂
