If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.
- Psalm 95:8
Just because you don't understand it, doesn't mean it isn't so.
- Lemony Snicket
Typically, in Western medical thinking hearing voices has always been associated with mental illness and frequently seen as a symptom of schizophrenia. Yet, we discovered many people who hear voices do not have a mental illness and never seek help. For this reason we are prepared to accept a range of explanations offered by people who hear voices, including spiritual ones, and believe it is essential to the process of recovery from overwhelming voices to understand the meaning of the voices to the voice hearer.
Due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) crisis currently facing our nation, the Montgomery County Hearing Voices Network is not able to offer our usual in person groups. Instead we are offering online groups (with phone dial-in access for those without Internet access) several times per week so we can all stay connected and engaged in the hearing voices community during this time of isolation. Please visit our Support Groups link to find out how to access these groups. Thank you and be well.

Voices Learning Community
Every Second Thursday of the Month
Next Meeting: August 12, 2021
6pm to 7:30 pm (EST)
Join us for a thought-provoking discussion to introduce the hearing voices experience. Many people have the experience of hearing voices, or experience other sensory phenomena not shared by others. If this sounds like you, or you are trying to support someone in your life who is struggling with these experiences, the Voices Learning Community will introduce you to a nonclinical environment where you will have the opportunity to speak with people with the hearing voices experience who live productive and fulfilling lives. Everyone is welcome, including family members, medical professionals, and anyone else interested in discovering an alternative viewpoint on the hearing voices experience.
