What’s it like to hear voices?

What’s it like to hear voices?
Early on when I first started trying to make videos I made a very poor version of this. That video is no longer available but I liked the concept so I’ve had another crack at it. I think this one’s a lot more satisfactory in getting the point across to non voice-hearers.

Voices can be single or multiple, internal or external and complimentary or abusive. Often they’re mood-congruent and they always take some time to get used to.
Some people never get used to the voices they hear. That’s when mental health services step in. It’s OK to talk about voice-hearing as a fairly common part of the human experience. About 15% of people hear voices. The vast majority of those people never need any help at all to deal with them. But for some – for the 1 or 2 percent who do have problems with their voices the assistance of mental health services can be a life-saver.
So the next time you see someone in the street shouting at nobody, cut them slack., They’re dealing with something you’d probably find pretty hard to handle yourself.
