OMH is offering a unique learning opportunity where participants can experience what is commonly referred to as auditory hallucinations. Participants will learn about the subjective experience of hearing distressing voices, increase their understanding of the day-to-day challenges facing people with psychiatric disabilities, become more empathic toward voice hearers, and be inspired to consider changes in clinical practice which would better address the needs of those who hear distressing voices.

This 3-hour training includes:

  • Presentation on the phenomenon of hearing distressing voices
  • The simulation experience
  • Discussion period
