CT Hearing Voices Network Groups are based firmly on a belief in self-help, mutual respect and understanding. They provide a safe space for people to share their experiences of voices, visions, unusual sensory perceptions, and to support one another. They are peer support groups involving social support and belonging, not therapy or treatment. The groups can offer an opportunity for people to accept and find meaning in their experiences in a way that helps them regain power over their lives.
CT Hearing Voices Network Groups are confidential. What is discussed in the groups stays in the groups.
CT Hearing Voices Network Groups welcome the diversity of experiences and views of the members. Rather than seeing one belief system as more valid than another, all explanations for voice and vision experiences are valued. There is no assumption of illness.
Rather than being solely focused on voices and visions, group members are welcome to talk about any issue that is important to them.
Membership of the groups is intended to be made up of people with lived experience of voices, visions and other unusual sensory perceptions. The groups recognize the importance of being truly member—led. Each participant has an important part to play in determining the direction of the group.
CT Hearing Voices Network Groups have two facilitators who are trained and certified by the Hearing Voices Network—USA.
