Hearing Voices (Audio) – Lived Experience Voices – NEW!

Voice-hearers reflect on their experiences of telling someone that they hear voices.

The lived experience stories include both positive and negative experiences and range from conversations with family members and friends through to discussions with employers and education providers.

 

These personal testimonies were collected by Elisabeth Svanholmer (voice-hearer and mental health trainer) and voiced by actors to protect individual identities.
