InterVoice Launches “One of a Million” Campaign


Intervoice, the “International Community for Hearing Voices,” has launched the “One of a Million” campaign to sign up one million members to the International Hearing Voices Movement. “It’s an opportunity to stand up and be counted – linking with allies across the world to send a strong message that hearing voices is a meaningful human experience.”

The flyer further states “Hearing voices is such a common experience, most of us know at least one person who hears voices that other people don’t. However, voice-hearing still remains a taboo subject for many. Whilst voice-hearing is accepted in some cultures, media images of madness and violence are all too common. This stigma can be more crippling than the voices themselves.”

Kermit Cole
Kermit Cole, MFT, founding editor of Mad in America, works in Santa Fe, New Mexico as a couples and family therapist. Inspired by Open Dialogue, he works as part of a team and consults with couples and families that have members identified as patients. His work in residential treatment — largely with severely traumatized and/or "psychotic" clients — led to an appreciation of the power and beauty of systemic philosophy and practice, as the alternative to the prevailing focus on individual pathology. A former film-maker, he has undergraduate and master's degrees in psychology from Harvard University, as well as an MFT degree from the Council for Relationships in Philadelphia. He is a doctoral candidate with the Taos Institute and the Free University of Brussels. You can reach him at [email protected].
