On Hearing Voices: Recovery as Social Action: The Personal is the Political

From Hearing Voices USA is Jacqui Dillon‘s Keynote Speech at INTAR 2014.

A few folks from our community travelled to Liverpool, England this summer to attend the INTAR 2014 conference (International Network Toward Alternatives and Recovery). The theme of this year’s conference was “Power to Communities: Healing through Social Justice.” Evan Goodchild made an audio recording of Jacqui Dillon‘s Keynote speech: Recovery as Social Action: The Personal is the Political.

Jacqui Dillon is the National Chair of the Hearing Voices Network in England. She has also helped develop HVN USA and has been involved in our Facilitator Trainings. (here for original post)

I love this because I’ve often viewed my healing process to simply not be just about me. It’s about all of us. It is for all of us too. And I also could not have done it without the constant communication with all of you out there. This has been a relationship process even when I’ve had to go deep into myself and spend most time alone.
