Portland Hearing Voices and HVN-USA present:  Hearing Voices Group Facilitation Training
JUNE 2, 3, 4th 2015

In this 3-day training, voice hearers and people who experience other extreme/altered states come together with people who have not experienced these states. The result is a powerful, diversified environment for learning, and a solid foundation for setting up and facilitating groups. Peers, professionals and allies are welcome: priority to those committed to creating a group.

This Hearing Voices Facilitators Training, presented by Oryx Cohen and Kate Hill, will give you the skills and knowledge to run Hearing Voices and Extreme States support groups!

Hearing Voices Groups (also called Voices, Visions and Extreme States groups) are a peer-led place to share and explore voices and any other kind of unusual and extreme experience, in a supportive and non-judgmental atmosphere. These states are sometimes labeled psychosis, but HVN embraces a much wider view of human possibility.

We are MFI



Samantha Johnson, psychiatric survivor, MFI intern

Samantha Johnson is a 22-year-old psychiatric survivor who is interning at the MindFreedom International office. "I was absolutely in disbelief at how the people were treated at the hospital. It was an environment of emotional abuse interspersed with 'treatments' and 'policies' that could be more accurately described as assault. The tragic thing is that there really are some good people working there, but they are unable to provide people with the help they need inside a system that prioritizes profits over people. It might take five years of counseling for someone to truly recover from a mental health crisis, but it takes five minutes to tranquilize them. This is why I started working with MindFreedom. For 25 years MFI has been challenging the mental health system to see us as human beings- to treat us as human beings- through peaceful activism. At MFI we emphasize individual choice, empowerment, and compassion as necessary aspects of a true healing process."
