Supporting Young People who Hear Voices & Use Drugs or Alcohol

London, United Kingdom,

There has been increasing awareness of the relationship between drugs and hearing voices in young people, but much less is said about what it might be like for a young person who uses drugs and hears voices, and even less about ways to support a young person in this situation.

Delivered by trainers with lived experience of using drugs and hearing voices, this training will:

  • look at the relationship between hearing voices and drug & alcohol use in young people
  • think about ways of understanding and talking to young people about drugs, alcohol and hearing voices
  • think about drug & alcohol use as a 'coping strategy', or way of coping with difficult voices
  • look at new ways to support young people with hearing voices and drug & alcohol use
