The London Paranoia & Beliefs Project launched in February 2012, and is run by Mind in Camden in association with the National Paranoia Network. Mind in Camden is known for its previous success establishing a London-wide network of groups for people who hear voices. Hearing Voices Groups are founded on an ethos of acceptance and validation, providing a safe space where members can share without fear of judgement, and where their experiences are understood as having personal meaning. The London Paranoia & Beliefs Project aims to develop a similar network of peer support groups for people experiencing paranoia or distress related to beliefs. There are now 10 such groups currently running in London, and another 6 in preparation – where beliefs can be explored, common ground discovered, and coping strategies shared.
We can support you to set up your own Paranoia & Beliefs peer support group: exactly how is detailed in the attached ‘Project Info for Partners’. Your group will need a minimum of two trained facilitators, and we will be offering 1 more facilitation training course after this one (dates: October 9th, 10th, 15th & 17th).
