"Hearing Voices" is a beautiful volume that uniquely captures the history and movement of first episode clinics. It is an outstanding reference book for all who wish to study and understand the importance and effectiveness of early intervention and treatment of first-episode psychosis from a holistic and recovery-oriented perspective. The writers present the lived experiences and voices of patients, family members and service providers, making "Hearing Voices" a clear narrative of insightful experiential knowledge. --Chris Summerville, CEO, Schizophrenia Society of Canada, executive director, Manitoba Schizophrenia Society"
