Founded in 2010, the Hearing Voices Network USA represents a partnership between individuals who hear voices or have other extreme or unusual experiences, professionals and allies in the community, all of whom are working together to change the assumptions made about these phenomenon and create supports, learning and healing opportunities for people across the country.

In the United States, Hearing Voices groups have existed in small numbers for well over five years, with some of the earliest known groups forming in Wisconsin, California and Massachusetts. However, there has been no real way to link them together, spread knowledge about the Hearing Voices approach, provide consistent guidelines on what qualifies as a ‘Hearing Voices’ group and support the development of new groups. These are the primary purposes of the Hearing Voices Network USA. Join us as we move forward and become one of the newest members of the International network!
