Understanding Voices was produced by Hearing the Voice and funded by a Wellcome Trust Collaborative Award in Humanities and Social Sciences (108720/Z/15/Z) and the Durham University Research Impact Fund. Durham University would like to thank the Wellcome Trust for their generous support.
Particular thanks go to over 100 voice-hearers, family members, friends, allies and health professionals who took place in our consultation process and prototype testing. Your knowledge, ideas and expertise have made this site what it is.
We are also indebted to the many members of the voice-hearing community whose experiences and stories are featured on this site.
More information about how voice-hearers and their allies were involved in the making of Understanding Voices is available here.
