New Hearing Voices support group

Light of MadnessThe “Light of Madness”, a new Hearing Voices support group has formed in the PSU area.¬†¬†According to Hearing Voices Facilitator, Casadi “Khaki” Marino,

We maintain a broad view on human experience. Distress and extreme states are seen as expressions of sensitivity, difference, or vulnerability. They are real, meaningful, and connected to life experiences. The more extreme the experience, the more extreme the response may be. An extreme state can be a way of trying to process and make sense of experiences.

Meetings are held Wednesdays, 5:30pm to 7:00pm, just off the main PSU campus on the 9th floor of the Market Street Building at 1600 SW 4th Avenue in Portland.  There is no charge for the meetings.

The group is expressly for individuals who have had mental illness/madness/extreme state experiences. Support people are welcome as needed by the individuals.
