Note: The group currently meets online
Hearing Voices Bognor aims to run a self-help group for people who hear voices, or who have visions, tactile sensations or other sensory experiences. In line with the national Hearing Voices Network’s approach, the purpose of the groups is to provide an opportunity for people who have (had) such experiences to talk freely about them together, and to support those who seek to understand, learn and grow from them in their own way.
Please come along if you would like to:
- Meet others with similar experiences
- Talk openly about experiences in a respectful, safe and supportive setting, without being labelled ‘ill’ or ‘psychotic’
- Reduce isolation and socialise
- Share and learn new ways of coping with difficulties
The group runs entirely independently of mainstream mental health services, and is not for the purposes of ‘assessing’, ‘monitoring’ or ‘treating’ so-called ‘symptoms’.
The group is facilitated, but not ‘led’ by the facilitators. Group members will have a big part to play in shaping the group to fit with what they need and want.
It is an open, drop-in group, which means that you can join at any time and come as often or as little as you want to.
We are also looking for facilitators, service users who are willing to commit to helping run the group some weeks.
If you are interested in being kept informed about the groups’ sessions, please get in touch with your contact details or just come along
