Hearing Voices NYC is moving towards having once-monthly general interest/collective meetings where people interested in the movement can share their experiences, projects, and collaborate. Our next meeting is November 3rd 2016 at Jefferson Market Library 6-8pm. ALL ARE WELCOME.
This meeting will be led by Karlijn Roex and will be about stigma before talking about general updates to our community (new groups & ideas that are forming). Plus HVN NYC now has bracelets! Come get one!
Karlijn Roex is a PhD candidate at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies (Germany), currently visiting at Columbia University, and a human rights activist. Before, she has studied at the University of Oxford. Since April 2016, she is a member of MindFreedom International, advocating for the rights of people with extreme mental states/ distress. Besides her dissertation on the social causes of suicide, she currently works on a project studying the precarious freedoms of people with extreme mental states/ distress.
