Listening to Voices inspires critical reflection and builds a framework of respect, understanding and hope in workplaces, educational settings and community.

What we do

Through performance, training, workshops and resources we:

  • share personal stories to ignite critical conversations in mental health
  • provide unique professional development opportunities
  • contribute the voice of those with lived experience in shaping our future mental health responses
  • address stigma and highlight the many links between trauma, family violence, bullying and mental health
  • create person centred, trauma informed, empathetic mental health workforces
  • inspire critical reflection and hopeful practices, such as the hearing voices approach.

How we can support you

We partner with local governments and community organisations to deliver in-theatre or venue performances that inspire hopeful and connected communities.
