Hearing Voices Groups

We provide peer led recovery groups for voice hearers to share their experience, learn new coping strategies and explore ways to grow and change the relationship with their voices. The groups give a sense of hope and possibility and provide an open space for voice hearers to feel comfortable,. Groups can also be accessed by clients with an NDIS package.

Our Hearing Voices Groups are delivered both in person and online.
