This movie by John Balasz investigates schizophrenia an 'illness' with no 'cure'. The label has persisted for over a century. This film offers multiple perspectives: Is schizophrenia hard science? Or an arbitrary, catch all term with no real meaning? What does it mean for those experiencing psychosis?

The film is a series of wide ranging interviews with voice hearers, medical historians, anthropologists and psychiatrists from Britain and America.

This will be followed by two speakers:
Claire Moore- "A Transformational Journey" from restriction and compliance to freedom, free thinking and independence.

Adrienne Giacon - A Holistic Perspective to Hearing Voices and Visions. Exploring a fresh perspective on how we can view this experience within a wholistic framework.

Note: Please bring a plate to share for afternoon tea.

This event is brought to you by Hearing Voices Network Aotearoa NZ - an independent society and registered charity that provides support, education and resources for people who experience voices and visions and other sensory experiences.

Our Annual General Meeting will be held afterwards. All are welcome to attend.

Please contact us to make a booking as seats are limited.
