Hearing Voices Support Group
Do you hear voices?
A new approach to treatment
NAMI Mercer is participating in a new movement that began in Holland and has spread to the United Kingdom and the United States. Known as the “Hearing Voices Network (HVN),” this approach involves self-help among voice-hearers and is based on the integrity and dignity of all individuals participating in support groups. Led by trained peers, HVN support groups help voice hearers to negotiate and live with their voices. Participants gain a better understanding of the voice-hearing phenomenon and learn how to work with (even talk back to) their voices.
