Durham Hearing Voices Cafe

Join us for a different kind of conversation on the first Thursday of every month.

What is a Hearing Voices Café?
Inspired by the Toronto Hearing Voices café and the Hearing Voices movement, the Durham Hearing Voices café aims to create a safe space for those who hear voices, those that support them and those that are curious to talk about their experiences. The Hearing Voices Movement offers a new look at voices as part the human experience, and promotes the idea that voices may offer insight and possibility and should be explored rather than ignored. This Hearing Voices Café aims to create change, connection and destigmatize experiences that get called psychosis. The idea is to connect people who struggle and to help them make sense of their experiences and help reduce isolation by creating connections. A Hearing Voices café does not tell people what they are experiencing, or what to do about it, but instead promotes healthy conversation and supportive listening.
