First Aired: 09-14-2009 -- Add comment

Hearing Voices NetworkHi everyone, happy World Hearing Voices Day. I’m terribly jet lagged but just arrived in Valkenburg Holland for the World Hearing Voices Congress. (also check out the audio)

Staying in a bungalow with Rufus May and some other great UK dissident mental health professionals, long conversations over forced treatment, suicide, addiction, shamanism, Voice Dialog, Theater of the Oppressed… I’m giving a workshop on coming off medications this thursday.

A great honor to be invited, and a wonderful chance to meet others and allies in the mad movement — and learn more. You can follow things at my Portland Hearing Voices twitter feed here: and the tag #hearingvoices.
