As a prelude to World Hearing Voices Day on Saturday 13 September 2014 we’re featuring an All In The Mind programme from ABC Radio National presented by Lynne Malcolm.

Invisible Intruders - The Voices In My Head

How do you deal with the voices in your head? We all have them to some extent – perhaps they’re just thoughts, comforting and easy to live with – but for some, they are menacingly real and reflect past trauma.

We hear what happens in the brain during auditory hallucinations, and how engaging with the voices can actually help to heal. One voice hearer even found relief by giving one of her voices his own Facebook page!
