The Intervoice Board is proud to re-launch the Intervoice Awards as an opportunity to honour the diversity and dedication of the community of which we are part. These awards are just one way to highlight some of the people, groups and organisations who contribute towards making the world a better place for those of us who hear voices, see visions or have other related phenomena.
Our movement is founded upon the shared belief that our experiences can be understood in many ways. Equally, we understand that people’s contributions to this movement can take many forms. Some are widely celebrated, but others are known to a few close allies or connections. We need your help to ensure that these awards reflect to diversity of our world community. This is an opportunity for you to raise your voice in the nomination process.
“I decided that my mind, body, and spirit had worked together to craft the best they could with limited resources, and to see myself as a helpless victim of chronic “mental illness” was merely adding insult to injury.” ― Eleanor Longden,
Making a Nomination
The Intervoice awards are an opportunity to give recognition to incredibly inspirational people, groups, research, initiatives and the opportunities taken to grow the Hearing Voices Movement and create hope across the world.
There are five categories of award. You are welcome to nominate any individual, a group/organisation or initiative that you would like to celebrate for their contribution to the Hearing Voices Movement in one of the following areas:
- Hearing Voices Groups and Networks
- Education / Promotion
You can complete the nomination form on our website (below) any time up until 10pm Sunday 16 October (UK time).
If you have any problems submitting the form, you can also e-mail us a nomination using this form: 2016 Intervoice Awards Nomination Form
We will announce the results of the awards on the Intervoice Day in Paris (19 October), as well as sharing it on our website, Facebook and twitter. We also contact those who have been nominated, individually.
Please note: The person does not need to be a member of Intervoice – the charity – but the nomination should link to their role within the wider Hearing Voices Movement.
