Many Voices. One Community. Changing the Conversation.
Hearing Voices NYC [currently seeking 501(c)(3) status] is a partnership of voice-hearers, people with lived experience, clinicians, peer specialists, family members, activists, and friends. We work together to: (1) unite voice-hearers with their friends, family, and allies into a cohesive network; (2) expand the availability of Hearing Voices Groups in the NYC/Metro area; (3) share insights, support, and strategies to the voice-hearing community, mental health providers, and the public at large through lectures, events, consultations, and trainings, and (4) work towards improving quality of life for all voice-hearers by reducing societal stigma regarding hearing voices — an often misunderstood, but common human experience.
