2018 Congress – The Hague, Netherlands

Living with Voices: a human right!

We are excited to announce that the World Hearing Voices Congress will be returning to the Netherlands in 2018 for its 10th anniversary.

The congress takes place at The Hague in September 2018.

Whilst the organisers are currently busy preparing the programme, we can confirm that it will explore human rights in the context of hearing voices.

We will share more details as soon as we have them.

The 10th World Congress includes:

Wednesday 12 Intervoice Day

A day for those who are part of Intervoice, or the World Hearing Voices Movement, to come together and share their experiences and ideas. This day is usually smaller than the main congress and encourages discussion and the sharing of wisdom. It is also a day we present the Intervoice Awards.

Thursday and Friday 13 and 14 – World Hearing Voices Congress

An exciting two-day programme of talks, workshops and opportunities for learning open to people who hear voices (or have similar experiences), family members, friends, professionals, academics and anyone who is interested in learning more.

Saturday 15 – Public Day

A day that is open to members of the public, aimed at raising awareness around voice-hearing and engaging people in interesting conversations that can create a change in attitudes to hearing voices.
