Voices & Visions Support Groups

BASED ON THE

INTERNATIONAL HEARING VOICES NETWORK

We can live well with unique sensory experiences

Do you feel alone with your unique sensory experiences, unsure of the experiences of your loved one, or simply want to meet people in the same boat as you?

Our Voices & Visions support groups are led by peers (people with lived/living experience with unique sensory experiences). The groups provide help and support and meet both in-person and virtually.

All groups are offered on a drop-in basis and are open to those with lived experience and their supporters.

**We do not meet on statutory holidays**

22 23 24Talking With Your DoctorTalking With Your DoctorTime: 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
Get the most out of your time with your doctor! Peer facilitators lead this 1.5 hour interactive workshop to empower patients to be active participants in their health care. An active patient asks questions, voices concerns and has opinions about their care which they share with their doctor(s) and other healthcare professionals. Using the PACE framework, we explore common challenges with doctor-patient interactions and learn techniques on how to improve them.
