Hearing Voices Network Wednesday, September 28, 7:30 pm
The speaker and discussant at our September 28 meeting, Cindy Marty Hadge, is a Lead Trainer for the Wildflower Alliance and Hearing Voices Network USA, and she is an international award-winning trainer and keynote speaker. Cindy spent many years struggling with trauma, use of both prescribed and
unprescribed drugs, and distressing voices, while receiving services from a mental health system that was at times helpful but was also frequently injurious. She is now creating a life she finds worth living through the healing environment of the Wildflower Alliance, the Hearing Voices Movement, and a belief in a loving higher power. In doing so, she has found that all her struggles have value in creating space for herself and others to heal.
Cindy will share her experience of navigating her voice-hearing experience and supporting others to do the same.
Speaker Meeting starts at 7:30 pm
Note: The meeting will be available in written summary in the newsletter, and video-recorded and accessible via the What’s New link on our website.

Bay Area Hearing Voices – Online Discussion Group – 4.28 @ 7:30pm
Our next discussion will be with Ed Herzog, a NAMI East Bay board member and one of the founders of the Bay Area Hearing Voices Network (BAHVN), part of the international HVN-USA. His organization offers weekly, online hearing voices groups for family members and adult voice hearers, as well as support and education.
Values of the group include challenging society’s norms on what is normal and what constitutes an illness, respecting/honoring our and our loved ones’ experiences, undoing stigma by using non-stigmatizing and owning our feelings.
Check out the website www.bayareahearingvoices.org for more information about this organization and join us for a conversation with Ed.
These specific-topic discussion groups are offered to alternate with the bimonthly speaker meetings and the format will be more casual and interactive and less didactic.

NAMI Speaker Meeting – January 27, 2021
Independent Living Association (ILA)
Recently introduced into Alameda County to impact housing stock, the ILA works to develop and support privately owned or operated homes that provide shared housing for adults with disabilities. Tenants in independent living situations are able to live independently, are often on a fixed income, and do not need supervision or care from their landlord. Tenants may have external case management or other kinds of outside support.
Our guest speaker, Program Manager Francesca Barua, will provide a program overview, what the membership process looks like, and how the program can benefit those who use our member directory and work with our member homes (both individuals as well as service providers). She will also describe the oversight and support services that are offered to home operators.
If this is a concept that interests you, either as a potential tenant or operator, please join us. There will be opportunity for questions and answers.
The November presentation will be Zoom/online, and we are asking attendees to preregister.
Event Date: Wednesday, January 27. Meeting starts at 7:30 pm
