Bay Area Hearing Voices

Online Discussion Group, Wed, April 28, 7:30.

   
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. Zoom link will be posted here week of April 28.

NAMI East Bay Online Support Groups

**** Please note: we will not be holding our weekly meeting on Tuesday, November 3  ****

Our support group offerings are changing radically in these unprecedented times. Starting Tuesday, April 14, online support groups will be held from 6:00-8:00 pm on a weekly basis.

These will occur using the Zoom platform, which provides access through the downloading of the Zoom app.

In order to deem this process manageable in terms of numbers, we ask that potential participants register your attendance by clicking this link: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZ0lce2pqTMjEtKs-gDOAYX29kw20Xk71Hsp. We will send back confirmation and information about passwords, meeting ID and logistics.

For the time being, there will be no distinction between groups for families of youth/young adults and families of adults.

As this process becomes more comfortable, we anticipate that this process may be modified.
