The HVN is a collection of Hearing Voices Groups and affiliated members (such as service providers, consumers, carers and friends) working toward promoting recovery, acceptance and education. Their role is to enable acceptance of hearing voices and promote recovery for people who hear distressing voices. This will be achieved through support for self-help groups, education and awareness.
About Hearing Voices Network Australia
In 2005 the Richmond Fellowship of WA (RFWA) brought Ron Coleman and Karen Taylor from Scotland to Perth to deliver a series of Recovery workshops. Ron's support and encouragement to begin a Hearing Voices Network resulted in the RFWA taking the innovative step of auspicing the development of Hearing Voices Network Auastralia (HVNA). The Richmond Fellowship has supported the network's setup and remains committed to its ongoing development and ultimate roll out across the country.
