Members of the congress

About The Congress

Hearing voices is a common human experience. A lot of people who hear voices found a way to live with their voices. Other people have a lot of problems with the voices they hear. Voice-hearers have a long history of stigmatisation, pathologisation, exclusion and violations of their human rights. The worldwide Hearing Voices Movement aims to help voice-hearers find a way to live with their voices and to emancipate the hearing of voices.

We invite everyone to come together at the 10th World Hearing Voices Congress to learn with and from each other about hearing voices, recovery, emancipation and human rights!
