The well-known psychologist Rufus May, with a couple of colleagues, has produced 15 different videos which are intended as inspiration and support for people interested in compassionate approaches to voices. You can find the videos here:


We endorse their recommendation: "If you are hearing voices or having similar experiences and they are causing you distress we would encourage you to seek support from someone you trust."

question, mischief? what if theres nobody the person hearing the voice can trust?

If the voices are causing distress and you feel unsafe and have no one you can trust call your local emergency number if you are concerned for your safety or the safety of others (e.g. 999, 911, 112 or 111 depending on where you are in the world), or call a helpline such as:

In the UK and Ireland, the Samaritans can be contacted on 116 123.
In the US, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 1-800-273-8255.
In Canada, the Suicide Prevention Service on 1.833.456.4566.
In Australia, the crisis support service Lifeline is on 13 11 14.
In New Zealand, the Need to Talk service is on 1737 or 080017371737.
Other international helplines can be found at www.befrienders.org.

Alternatively, your local mental health service may also have a helpline that you can call.
