The Queensland Hearing Voices Community is pleased to announce the second of three workshops funded by the QLD Mental Health Commission (QMHC) Community Awareness Initiative and supported by Aftercare.

The second workshop ‘Understanding & Working With People Who Hear Voices’  is a 3 day workshop that will be held on Monday 28th, Tuesday 29th and Wed 30th of September 2015, at the Merthyr Road Uniting Church at New Farm.

The training will be facilitated by Amanda Waegeli  and Ros Thomas.  Amanda is a Peer Specialist and Independent Mental HealthRecovery Consultant who has gained mastery over her experience of voice hearing through Hearing Voices Groups and the Hearing Voices Approach.
