The German National Network (NeSt e.V.) was founded in 1998. It has about 130 members and an office in Berlin.
Monika Hoffmann, one of the co-founders of the “NeSt”, is still one of its most active members.

Andreas Gehrke wrote an interesting book about his voice hearing experience ‘Aufbruch aus dem Angstkaefig – Paranus Verlag’ (note: It is only available in German at the moment. Perhaps somebody could find the means to translate it into English?)

Read more about the founding member Hannelore Klafki, who very sadly died in September 2005.


  • There are five self help groups and three trialogue groups on hearing voices in Germany, and – not to forget – more than a 100 psychosis seminars.
  • They offer a confidential helpline in three cities (Berlin, Frankfurt, Neustadt) and there are 19 contact persons who represent the “NeSt” all over the country.
  • They publish a magazine (“Unser Kleines Stimmenhoerer Journal”) four times a year.
  • Antje Mueller and Caroline von Taysen hold seminars regularly.
