THE VOICES FORUM
The Voices Forum is an excellent flagship liberational organisation for mad people, run by mad people. Schizophrenia is the main speciality, but the group is open to other kinds of madness too. Voices Forum publishes PERCEPTIONS, a quarterly newsletter which has some very interesting items in, and has meetings in London, Birmingham, Manchester, and other places. Especially good is the VOICES SELF-MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE, which is held annually in various places at random, and at which there is useful talk on how to cope with schizophrenia and how to use the advantages of having schizophrenia to improve your life. For information about joining VOICES you can phone 020 8547 9226 or take a look at the Perceptions Forum "Join-Us" page
Remember: Just about anyone who has been great in history has been mad.
For further information on The Voices Forum take a look at the OFFICIAL VOICES FORUM SITE now up and running (2001/07) at www.perceptionsforum.org.uk !!!
