Portland Hearing Voices
Portland Hearing Voices is a new community learning partnership for people who hear voices, see visions, and have unusual beliefs and sensory experiences. We ask the question, What do these experiences mean to you? and welcome all individual interpretations, recognizing emotional distress and pain while also acknowledging positive sides of creativity, sensitivity, and spirituality. A non-judgmental approach accepts the range of possibilities in how we live with our experiences. Through discussion groups, public events, and education we embrace and support mental diversity and explore the meaning in the voices.
