The Hearing Voices Simulation is a groundbreaking empathy-building exercise that helps individuals, students, and professionals understand the challenges faced by people with psychiatric disabilities.
During the Simulation, participants listen to distressing voices through headphones while completing a series of tasks, such as taking a mental status exam in a mock emergency room. During the debriefing, even veteran mental health workers say that they have gained new insights into the strength and resilience of those of us with psychiatric disabilities.
IMPORTANT: We highly suggest keeping each training within the max count of 40 participants.
