If you hear voices HVN can help – we are committed to helping people who hear voices. Our reputation is growing as the limitations of a solely medical approach to voices become better known. Psychiatry traditionally refers to hearing voices as ‘auditory hallucinations’ but research shows that there are many explanations for hearing voices. Many people begin to hear voices as a result of extreme stress or trauma.

We offer information, support and understanding to people who hear voices and those who support them.

Living With Voices

recovery network: Toronto
Our Vales:
These values inform our daily practice. They also inform all moderating decisions on this website/blog.

We honor each other. We accept people as they are: unique, individuals with something to offer and something we can learn from. We remind everyone that there are no limits to anyone’s recovery. We encourage a sense of hope in everyone for their own ability to recover in ways that is meaningful to them. We validate people’s experience and the insights they draw from them. We treat others with dignity, compassion and respect and hold each other in unconditional high regard. We offer choices and options, not answers and solutions. We believe each of us is expert in ourselves, our own condition and experiences. We support each individual’s right to choose what is best for them and to choose who they turn to for support and guidance in making those choices.

We will share common, simple coping tools and strategies for people who hear voices. Share resources and enjoy a safe place to use creativity and express some of your own experience living with voices.

The Secret Handshake – Schizophrenia Peer Support

Group Name: The Secret Handshake – Schizophrenia Peer Support

Description: Formed in 2004 in response to a void in the after-treatment of patients following a schizophrenia diagnosis, The Secret Handshake is a Peer Support facility in Canada created by and for people with schizophrenia. It is similar to the model of peer support organization Alcoholics Anonymous. The Secret Handshake recognizes that peers are uniquely equipped to counsel and support others coping with the illness. Members mentor and share recovery techniques and resources. Most important, we build deep friendships based on mutual trust and respect, breaking the cycle of isolation, stigma and ostracism.

Many people coping with schizophrenia do not have the support or skills to reintegrate into the mainstream. Frequently, they are not aware of important services available to them. We help them navigate the system. They can be very isolated, even in a family setting. Members flourish when they meet regularly with people who are living with the schizophrenia experience. The diagnosis of any mental or physical illness requires treatment and support specific to that illness. This is why there is tremendous value in our Diagnostic Specific model.
