Hearing Voices Network is a small national charity aiming to create spaces for people who hear voices, see visions or experience paranoia to talk freely about their experiences. These symptoms are sometimes referred to as ‘psychosis‘. They also aim to challenge negative stereotypes and raise awareness of different ways of coping with distressing or difficult voices or other sensory experiences. They have support groups across the country, where people with lived experience can meet and support one another.
Sheffield Hearing Voices Network
Sheffield Hearing Voices Network is open to anyone who experiences paranoia or hearing voices. The group is also facilitated by people with personal experience of paranoia and hearing voices. You can self-refer to the group and you do not have to be accessing mental health services to attend. If you are interested but find the prospect of attending daunting, you can meet with one of the facilitators prior to attending.
The group provides a supportive, informal environment where people can share their fears, worries and ways of coping that have worked for them.
The Sheffield HVN Group runs every Monday (except Bank Holidays) from 10.30am – 11.30am. The group is currently meeting online, on Zoom. You can contact the organisers to access the link.
