Mental Diversity 101 with Will Hall and Myriam Rahman of Portland Hearing Voices.
The presentation will introduce the concept of mental diversity and will focus on social justice, human rights, and how social workers can advocate and support systems change.
Portland Hearing Voices is a new community group to promote mental diversity. The group creates public education, discuss groups, and community support related to hearing voices, seeing visions, and having unusual beliefs and sensory experiences often labeled as psychosis, bipolar, schizophrenia, and other mental disorders. The group aims to reduce fear and misunderstanding, question stereotypes, promote holistic health options, overcome isolation, and create a more inclusive and supportive community.
