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.
Talking out about voices and visions is no easy feat, but Nikki shows that it is possible to overcome difficult experiences and express them. 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.
