Voices and Visions in the News

Nikki talking about Hearing Voices on Sky News

Nikki, a participant in our recent artistic collaboration with Wellcome Collection, courageously shared some of her own experiences of hearing voices that other people can’t on Sky News.

We hope that seeing Nikki speak out gives other young people the courage they need to let others know that they’re struggling with voice and – if needed – access help.
