A spectrum of experience
Hearing voices: A spectrum of experience (downloadable PDF)

It is increasingly recognised that voice-hearing exists on the end of a ‘continuum’ or ‘spectrum’ that includes ordinary verbal thinking, day-dreaming and intrusive thoughts. We all have the capacity for hearing voices, it’s just that some of us are more likely than others to hear more intense voices, or to hear them more often.
To learn more about this, and why voice-hearing is distressing for some and not for others, download the ‘A spectrum of experience’ PDF here.

This is very informative, thank you.
I was quite lost when I used to hear voices around the age of 16 for a short period of time, with no diagnosis whatsoever, I was very afraid and none cared to explain to me.
I had no idea voices could be connected to other causes than schizofrenia.
