Voice Collective is aimed at people who are hearing or seeing things which they cannot explain or that cause difficulties for them. When we’re talking about voices and visions, we’re talking about people seeing, hearing or sensing things that other people around them don’t. Some people have experiences which comfort, inspire or make them laugh. Others have ones that are more frightening and confusing. Many have a bit of both.
Included below are two booklets produced by Mind which offer guidance for parents of young people who hear voices or see visions.
The information in the booklets has been created by project staff, some of whom have personal experience of living with voices and visions. Whilst developing the booklet they were also guided by parents and carers, and have used some of their quotes throughout.
