Back on Trak CD for Sale
Back on Trak features seven tracks of original music and lyrics by Prahran Mission participants who have developed their craft over the last 12 months. The title Back on Trak was jointly selected by both participants and Trak Live Lounge to show how music has enabled them to get back on track and move forward with their lives. The CD Back on Trak is now available for $20 from the Mission Op Shops in Chapel St and Dandenong, The Mission Cafe, or at level 3 reception at 211 Chapel Street. Watch this space for a short film about the project, coming very soon!
Hearing voices is a common human experience.
Prahran Mission's innovative consumer-led program supports people who hear voices, their support and clinical workers, and families, friends and carers.
In 2012 Voices Vic won a Gold Achievement Award at The Mental Health Services (TheMHS) Conference, and the impact of our work continues to offer hope and recovery to people across Victoria.

Do you hear voices?
You are not alone.
We help set-up peer support groups for voice hearers, deliver talks and information sessions about the voice hearing experience, and run training about recovery from voices. We also run individual peer support in our Voice Exchange program.
Our work is open to voice hearers, mental health professionals, and family, friends and carers of voice hearers.
We work with the hearing voices approach, which is informed by the wisdom of people who have recovered. We don’t try to get rid of voices, but instead work to help people make sense of them and eventually change the relationship with the voices.
