Hearing Voices

'Hearing Voices is a term used to represent the experience of what is also called 'auditory hallucinations', or hearing things that other people cannot. 'Hearing Voices' can also be related to the experiences of seeing visions, sensing things and beliefs that others may find unusual.

Many people hear voices and find them helpful, sacred of just a normal part of life. Some people find voices confusing or frightening and seek help to cope. These people are commonly diagnosed with schizophrenia or another mental illness.
