Hearing the Voice

Writers’ Inner Voices is part of Hearing the Voice, a large interdisciplinary research project that aims to provide a better understanding of what it is like to hear a voice that no one else can hear. The experience has been richly described across cultures and historical eras, and raises profound questions about the neural foundations of language, the nature of thought and the unity of the self.

You can find out more about Hearing the Voice at the project website, or keep up to date about current research and events at the blog.

Although we are not clinicians and cannot offer clinical support, we have collated a list of sources of information that have proved valuable to those seeking help and advice about voice-hearing experiences.

If you hear voices or support someone who does, you may also be interested in Understanding Voices, our website for voice-hearers, their families and health professionals, which provides information about different approaches to voice-hearing and ways of supporting those who are struggling with the voices that they hear.
