Hearing voices (otherwise knows as auditory hallucinations) can be very distressing. Here are a few resources that might help:http://www.nnt.nhs.uk/mh/leaflets/Hearing%20Voices.pdf
<----- A very useful leaflet produced by the NHS. It contains information about how to cope if you are hearing voices and has space for you to write your own ideas.http://www.mind.org.uk/Information/Booklets/Other/The+voice+inside.htm
<----- A Mind booklet about hearing voices. It contains some very reassuring information as well as ideas for dealing with them.http://www.hearing-voices.org/
<----- The website of an organisation that supports people who hear voices. There's a helpline and some information on local groups.
People learn to deal with upsetting voices in their own way. Here are some ideas that might help you:
*Listening to music through headphones can help to drown them out.
*Talking back to them - it's ok to get angry and disagree with what you're hearing.
*Medication - some medications can be helpful for quietening or getting rid of voices.
*Ignoring them - you don't have to listen to what they're saying. Remember that they can't hurt you or make you do anything that you don't want to do.
*Some people find that sensory deprivation or social isolation can contribute to hearing voices. Getting out and about and communicating with people on a regular basis can help.
Feel free to add your own ideas. Everyone's different, and what works for one person might not work for another.
