England's FlagThe first hearing Voices group was formed in 1988 in Manchester. Following a national conference held in London in 1990, the Independent on Sunday newspaper published a prominent article on the topic which generated a lot of correspondence. As a result they decided to establish a network of voice hearers and individuals who were interested in the experience of hearing voices.


  • Promoting, developing and supporting self-help groups
  • Organising and delivering training sessions for health workers and the general public
  • Making available a telephone line that gives information and help to people who experience hearing voices, seeing visions and tactile sensations
  • Giving men, women and children who have these experiences an opportunity to talk freely about them
  • Producing four newsletters a year
