Hearing Voices Groups

Hearing Voices Groups are self-help, social groups not psychotherapy or “treatment” groups. Click here to read the Hearing Voices USA Charter & to find out what a group entails. You can read a nice description of groups here.

Hearing Voices Network NYC does not control/monitor these groups in any way, groups are created by people in the community and then listed on the website as a means of organzing them.

Are you a voice-hearer or person with lived experience & are looking to form a group? Let us know! We can help you advertise your group, find a space, a co-facilitator, materials, etc.
