This Hearing Voices Group is a peer support group especially for young people between the ages of 13 and 26. Around 8 % of young people hear or see things that other people don't. These kinds of experiences can affect all 5 senses. Some people find these experiences comforting, especially if they've been through a difficult time, but others feel overwhelmed and scared by them. Whatever your experience is, and however you feel about it, it's good to know that you're not alone in it. At a Hearing Voices Group the most important thing is that you're supported to find a way of understanding your experiences that makes sense to you.
Peer Support is based on the idea that, often the best people to help us through difficult times are those that have been there too. It's about getting together, sharing experiences, and finding ways of coping with them. Hearing voices or having other unusual experiences doesn't have to stop you from living the life you want to live. There are lots of ways of coping, and living with, these experiences--and many people do. This group is free to all young voice hearers.
