Hearing voices congress survey summary arana 21 nov 2013 keepwell final

  1. 1. © Keepwell Ltd Keepwell™ Aust Pty Ltd Presentation to: THE WORLD HEARING VOICES CONGRE SS | Journeys to Understanding – Sharing experience, expertise & wisdom http://www.hearingvoices2013.org Summary of Australia wide survey ‘forming a national hearing voices network’
  2. 2. WHY A SURVEY? • There is currently no national network of Australian voice hearers that Australian’s can join • A survey of Australian opinion would add value to this discussion. • No one had asked people what they wanted or thought about a national network in a systematic way before. • Intervoice & Richmond Fellowship WA agreed to discuss the formation of a network at this congress
  3. 3. Survey results: the need  61.67% said “no” or ‘don’t know’ if there is a HV group in their community  58.33% said “yes” to the question I want to see a new Hearing Voices Group start up in my community
  4. 4. Survey results: the resource  100% of respondents said yes to the formation of an Australian HVN  All States and Territories represented except ACT.  Over 40% of respondents said ‘yes’ or ‘maybe’ to the question I am interested to become a board member for the new organisation and I share my e- mail contact details here.
  5. 5. Survey results: the graphs…
  6. 6. The hearing voices groups I attend are best described as
  7. 7. Survey results  No dues or fees for membership  Individuals can join the national network  Organisations & professionals can be members
  8. 8. Survey results: Board membership  The board members are people with good skills to set up and run an organisation.  The board should be at least 50% voice hearers.  The board should have members who have been consumers of mental health services.  Non-voice hearers should be board members and have voting rights
  9. 9. Survey results: Board membership should not be  ….only be made up of one representative NGO organisation from each state or territory.  Probably not have organisations who can become members of the board with voting rights.  The board should NOT be 100% voice hearers
  10. 10. Survey results: Functions of the Board...  Support new groups  Maintain & develop a national website  Develop Australian based literature  Supply literature
  11. 11. Survey results: The main purposes of the network are  Helping people recover, who are distressed by their voices is the primary purpose of HVNA  Helping the general public to understand voices & destigmatise voices is a purpose  People who see visions and other sensory phenomenon are welcome at a HVNA group/also paranoia groups
  12. 12. Survey results: the best ways to grow the Australian network… 1. Training for facilitators on how to run a Hearing Voices peer support groups 2. The development of printed information on how to start a Hearing Voices group in Australia 3. A national newsletter for HVNA 4. More publications written by Australian's about their experience of Hearing voices 5. A paid administrator who can run an office and be there to support growth of the HV network
  13. 13. W.H.O. KEY RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SERVICE ORGANISATION • Limit mental hospitals • Build community mental health services • Develop mental health services in general hospitals • Integrate Mental health into primary health care • Build informal community mental health services • Promote self care
