BAHVN PROVIDER LIST
The BAHVN is in the process of compiling a list of California (primarily but not exclusively based in the Bay Area) providers with expertise in working with psychosis. We are not endorsing the providers on this list; but instead list all clinicians who volunteer their information. We always suggest that people seeking clinicians meet or discuss the fit between their needs and what a given provider can offer before committing to a course of therapy or other forms of treatment (e.g. acupuncture, alternative medicine). Please click here for the list.
DOCUMENTARIES & VIDEOS
Voices Matter. Open Paradigm Project. A documentary about the global Hearing Voices Movement, filmed at the 2012 World Hearing Voices Congress in Cardiff, Wales.
In the Real. Directed by Conor McCormack. "Filmed over two years in collaboration with the Bristol Hearing Voices Network, a self-help group for people who hear voices, In the Real is a 59min observational documentary film which goes to the heart of the voice-hearing experience. Who, or what, are the voices that only these men can hear? What do they say and what do they mean? And how does hearing voices transform their sense of self and world?"
Compassion for Voices. Cultural Institute, King's College London. "This 5-minute film presents an alternative way of relating to [voices]; this goes against the tide of traditional approaches and culturally engrained attitudes. Essentially, it charts the therapeutic progression of a young man, Stuart, from being tormented by his voices, through establishing safeness, to developing the qualities needed to engage with them through compassionate dialogue. For people with psychosis, this may have therapeutic value as a template or metaphor for their own recovery journey."
Peer Leadership in Early Intervention for Psychosis Services. A webinar sponsored by the National Consumer's Mental Health Self-Help Clearinghouse and featuring BAHVN organizer Nev Jones, Philadelphia-based HVN leader Berta Britz, and Irene Hurford.
Psychosis Summit. We are a group of people who have lived experience with psychosis and their families and friends. After witnessing firsthand the many difficulties associated with psychosis as a result of stigmas, we created an advocacy and support organization called South Bay Project Resource. This online Psychosis Summit is our 2017 initiative aimed towards strategically raising awareness on treatment methodologies, and support approaches, for helping peers dealing with psychosis and their families.
WORK & SCHOOL STORIES PROJECT
BAHVN Organizer Nev Jones collected stories/narratives regarding experiences of work and school from working adults and students with psychosis. The project was compiled into a searchable (free and publicly available) database, and is available for download here.
Maastricht Interview for Voices Hearers. Detailed semi-structured clinical interview designed to map an individual's experience of hearing voices across multiple dimensions.
