Abstract: Clinical responses to consumers’ voice hearing experiences are not always aligned with useful contemporary consumer-led approaches employed by the Hearing Voices Movement. This paper outlines the development of a Hearing Voices Recovery Support Group that builds on these principles to enable voice hearers to share and learn from their experiences together, in a way that is supported by clinical expertise and evidence-based recovery frameworks. One of the most important aspects of this model is the role of genuine collaboration between consumers and clinicians in the development and delivery of the group. There are many insights from the evolution of this model that are worthwhile to consider in the collaborative provision of clinical services more generally.
