The 6th World Hearing Voices Congress will take place from 10-12th October 2014 in Thessaloniki, Greece.
The theme will be: "Odysseying with the Sirens: struggling towards recovery in times of crisis".
This year's title refers to the Odyssey, Homer's famous epic where the Sirens lured Ulysses from his path. Everyone interested in the Hearing Voices movement is invited to come along to share, participate, meet one another - all in a most beautiful and ancient setting.
The congress organisers are The Hellenic Hearing Voices Network and the Hellenic Observatory for Rights in the field of Mental Health.
The deadline for submission of papers is 30th May 2014 and early registration rates are available until 10th August 2014.
