The Melbourne Hearing Voices Declaration

The Melbourne Hearing Voices Declaration has been developed by people with lived experience of hearing voices from Australia, UK and Europe, with the aim of building support for the hearing voices approach within the mental health system.

The Declaration was launched at the World Hearing Voices Congress on Thursday 21st November 2013. The Congress was organised and led by consumers, and hosted over 700 delegates from all around the world. Delegates included consumers, carers, health professionals, policy makers and researchers. You can find out more about the Congress and about Voices Vic here.

The Melbourne Hearing Voices Declaration was signed by 56 organisations who have embraced the opportunity to publically demonstrate their support for the consumer leadership movement and the importance of engaging in a productive way with the experience of hearing voices. The Declaration below outlines the commitments made by these organisations.
