Talking Heads is a group for people who hear, see and believe things that other people do not (such as hearing voices).
People with these experiences are seen as the experts in their own experiences. Talking Heads offers a place for people to support each other and share their experiences and knowledge. The group is based on the principles of the Hearing Voices Network.
Group members have agreed to treat people respectfully and keep conversations in the group confidential.
