Book on Hearing Voices

Hearing Voices: The Personal Stories of Voice Hearers.

Intervoice and Ben Gray are putting together a book on the experiences and stories of hearing voices.

The emphasis is about all sorts of voices and voice hearers and all sorts of points of view and personal journeys.

What did the voices say? How did they make you feel? What was the reaction of family, friends and mental health professionals?

If you would like to contribute to this book, then please send your story to the email below.

You should try to write between 1- 10 pages on your experiences (300- 3000 words).

All profits will be donated to the funding of Intervoice.

If we are going to change and improve voice hearers' lives, then your stories are the first place to start.

Hi Dode

Not a bad idea, but some experiences need thinking about and finding the right words to express what has happened so I think the book is a really good idea.

It would give us time to think, put to document, and then send on later.

Don't know what other people think?

Am really looking forward to the book. Hope I'll be able to get it in the states. Sometimes have a hard time getting publications from over seas.

It's good to hear that people are interested in writing about their experiences of hearing voices. It's very important to raise awareness and have your say!

We are still looking for people's stories.

Ricky B,

I think it's an excellent idea to raise awareness and probably therapeutic for the individual to write as well as informative for other voice hearers and whomever should read this book.

My question to you and Ben Gray is; will you give any feedback to the voice hearer who does donate his/her story to this book???
I believe this would be very beneficial to the voice hearer who contributes to the book.
Afterall, we are looking for possible answers/solutions on how to deal with voices no matter where they come from.

Thank You,
rabina

Hi Rabina,

The book will be of help because as well as having people's stories we will mention modern approaches to hearing voices and how to cope with them.

The book's in its very early stages, so getting people's stories is really important so that we can consider more humane and democratic approaches of helping voice hearers.

Lots to do!
