    Hearing Distressing Voices is a ground breaking training that helps mental health professionals understand the challenges that face people with psychiatric disabilities. During the 3-hour training participants listen to distressing voices through headphones while completing a series of tasks such as taking a mental status exam in a mock psychiatric emergency room. Afterwards, participants take part in a debriefing and talk about what they experienced.
