The 9th World Hearing Voices Congress
The World Hearing Voices Congress was held at Boston University in Boston, Massachusetts, August 16 – 18. The event celebrated the 30th year of the Hearing Voices movement worldwide and the first time it’s ever been convened on US shores. With 440 participants, it played host to people from 18 countries and 28 US states. Feedback resoundingly highlighted the diversity and all-inclusive nature of this year’s congress.
HVN-USA partnered with Ed Herzog, a board member for the Bay Area HVN and documentary filmmaker, to assure there were some lasting images from this year’s congress. Each of the keynote addresses can be found on the new HVN USA Youtube channel.
