The People with Psychosis Embracing the Voices They Hear


In this piece for Vice, Laetitia Laubscher discusses the Hearing Voices Network, a non-medical approach to hearing voices and experiencing extreme states.

“…a key goal for the Hearing Voices Network is the eradication of stigma. The ultimate objective, says Ron, is that ‘that every voice hearer can walk down the street and talk back to their voices, and everybody will accept that as being normal. That we accept voice hearers in the same way we accept people who are left-handed. Hearing Voices [Network] is not about illness, it’s about liberation.'”
