BASED ON THE INTERNATIONAL HEARING VOICES NETWORK

We can live well with unique sensory experiences

Voices & Visions support groups are open to anyone with lived experience of hearing voices, seeing visions, or other unique sensory experiences, as well as their supporters. There are both virtual and in-person options, depending on what works best for you.

Virtual Groups
