Introducing the hearing voices approach into Brazil

In April 20015 Paul Baker spent two weeks in Brazil introducing the hearing voices approach to people who hear voices, family members and mental health workers. Three two day workshops were held in Marilia, Campinas (both in the state of Sao Paulo) and Rio de Janiero.

The response was enthusiastic and in each of the cities new hearing voices groups are to be set up. Paul was accompanied by Marius Romme, the founder of the Hearing Voices Movement and co-facilitated the meeting in Campinas.
