Places for People, a St. Louis-based organization that offers outpatient mental health care, is bringing visibility to mental health issues through the “Hear Our Voices” campaign. The purpose of #HearOurVoices is to change perceptions of people living with schizophrenia spectrum disorders and severe persistent mental illness by having people experience the auditory hallucinations experienced by someone with schizophrenia. Here are three ways you can participate:
- Visit http://placesforpeople.org/hear-our-voices and participate in the auditory activity (NOTE: Places for People warns that this activity may not be suitable for people with mental illnesses or vertigo)
- Share your experiences or support by using the #HearOurVoices hashtag on Twitter, Facebook, and other social media sites.
- Challenge your friends and family to participate in the campaign by engaging in the experience or posting to social media.
