[Video of Interest] A Little Insight

Young people from the Voice Collective came together to create this stigma busting animation. The film will be used in schools and online to educate people about hearing voices and to break down barriers between young people.

From the description: Hearing voices that others around you don’t hear is much more common than most people think. This animation was created by a group of 5 young people who hear voices (aged between 13 and 18) in a bid to raise awareness of the experience in schools, and challenge stigma.

As one young person pointed out - when someone comes back to school with a broken arm, everyone crowds around to sign their cast. When someone’s struggling with hearing voices they tend to back off, unsure what to say or do. Why is there a difference?
