10th anniversary celebration for West Cork Hearing Voices Group!

The West Cork Hearing Voices Groups are delighted to announce that we will celebrate our tenth anniversary in September 2023.

We started with one group and grew to three groups across West Cork. Our goal is to have a group in every main town in West Cork.

Co-facilitators have been trained by Jacqui Dillon in 2013, new facilitators and group members availed of Training in 2022 and 2023.

The group is a safe, relational and reflective space, it honours the very human experience of voice hearing and other experiences and is grounded in the Hearing Voices Network Ireland (HVNI) ethos of mutual support, self-help, empathy, respect and acceptance.

The group is a place to share experiences and come together to get and give support. We are a partnership of voice hearers, mental health social workers and recovery support workers.

Two facilitators are on the HVNI committee and each of us are connected through shared goals and values to the world-wide Hearing Voices Movement.

We are delighted to have reached this milestone and look forward to continuing on this journey together.
