Intervoice and TED

Here is a link to the site of Intervoice - a valuable organisation, working to improve the rights of the emotionally distressed (AKA mentally ill) in society.  I have just signed up to their 'One in a Million' campaign to help to get the word out about their work.  Please take a look:

Also, over the last few years I have listened to various TED talks, usually from psychiatric survivors.  These talks, on many different subjects, are an absolutely invaluable resource, so I am linking to that site too:

Fill your boots!


  1. Just visited the Intervoice website and all I can say is WOW! I am so happy that someone is trying to normalise the phenomenon of hearing voices. If they are successful, it will go a long way to help! I signed their pledge and left my story in the comments box: It's not been passed through the moderators yet though.

    I will definitely be checking Intervoice out again though and seeing if they are on Twitter! Thank you for pointing out a really useful organisation!!

  2. Really glad you found it useful. Intervoice are definitely on Twitter and Facebook - I saw the details on their site. Well done for sharing your story - I also tried to mine, but could not publish it for some reason - I'll try again sometime.

  3. There is a heading 'Connect with Us' on the top right hand side of the home page, and it has the buttons for Facebook, Twitter, etc.
