HEARING THE VOICE

INTERDISCIPLINARY VOICE-HEARING RESEARCH
What it is like to hear voices that no-one else can hear?

Hearing voices is an important aspect of many people’s lives. It is an experience that can be distressing and upsetting, but also positive and meaningful.

We seek to provide a better understanding of this experience by examining it from different academic perspectives and working with voice-hearers, clinicians and mental health professionals.

About Us

Hearing the Voice is a large interdisciplinary study of voice-hearing, based at Durham University and funded by the Wellcome Trust.

Our international research team includes academics from anthropology, cognitive neuroscience, history, linguistics, literary studies, medical humanities, philosophy, psychology and theology. We also work closely with clinicians, voice-hearers and other experts by experience.

In addition to shedding light on the relations between hearing voices and everyday processes of sensory perception, memory, language and creativity, we are exploring why it is that some voices (and not others) are experienced as distressing, how they can change across the life course, and the ways in which voices can act as important social, cultural and political forces.

Living with Voices: Can you help us build an app for young people who hear voices?

We’re looking for a group of young people (aged 16–25) with first-hand experience of hearing voices who would like to work with us to build a pilot version of our Living with Voices app. Later this month we will be running a series of three online workshops in which we’ll co-design the app and develop its features together. Workshops will take place on Monday 21 March, 28 March and 4 April (6–7.30pm).
