Whilst the first official World Hearing Voices Congress was in Maastricht in 2009 – the birthplace of the Hearing Voices Movement – conferences and meetings held in countries such as Denmark, Australia and Scotland gave voice hearers and their allies the opportunity to meet and share experiences and inspiration.
If this is your first congress, you may find it helpful to hear what has taken place in previous years. Whilst Intervoice – the charity – supports every congress, each one is organised by a national network and addresses a local need as well as an international one. This means that each Congress has its own unique flavour, in addition to the common theme of community and acceptance that runs through them all.
You can find an overview of each Congress on the Intervoice website.
