‘Hearing voices’ is described as hearing a voice when no-one is present with you, or which other people with you cannot hear. Some people also see things that others can’t see. Others have touch, smell or taste sensations which they can’t explain in everyday ways. These experiences are called hallucinations.
People have many different experiences, some people don’t mind their voices while others find them frightening and distracting. It’s common to think that if you hear voices you must have a mental health problem, but research shows that lots of people hear voices and most of them are not mentally unwell. It’s a common human experience.
If you are having these experiences; would like support or to talk to others in a similar situation then please come along to our new support group
