"National Paranoia Network at The Crossing, Worksop"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

(as other),

The Paranoia Network was originally launched in 2004. It is run by Peter Bullimore, Kate Crawford and Tori Reeve.

The organisation aims to raise awareness of how disabling paranoia can be and to breakdown social taboos. The Network runs training sessions globally to professional bodies and all interested parties on how to understand a person's paranoia and help them make sense of it.

The National Paranoia Network is a voluntary organisation to support people who express paranoia and unusual beliefs. The organisation is run by people with self experience of paranoia and hearing voices.

The Paranoia Network visited an event at The Crossing in Worksop October 8th 2011 and displayed lots of information on their stall about the work of the network. Staff from Nottinghamshire Healthcare attended the day to promote positive mental health.

Peter Bullimore summed up the day and the work of the network: ‘Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.’ (Margaret Mead - American cultural anthropologist).

On the 8th 9th & 10th of November 2011 there is a 3 day congress on 'Understanding and working with the consequences of Childhood Sexual Abuse' where some of the topics will cover hearing voices and paranoia: for more info please contact peterbullimore@yahoo.co.uk or call 07590837694.
