Eleanor Longden: Learning from the voices in my head

Some of you may have seen Eleanor Longden give an inspiring presentation at our Making A Difference conference in Newtown back in May.

Earlier in the year Eleanor was invited to present a short, 6 min talk at TEDxLondon on voice hearing - it's now online here.  She needs people to consider rating it and leaving some feedback. Talks with the highest ratings will be invited to give extended presentations at TED 2013 in California, so this would be a great opportunity for spreading the word.

At 17, Eleanor Longden had a promising future ahead of her; then she was diagnosed with schizophrenia. After a lifelong battle with the voices in her head, today she has a Masters in psychology and a second chance.
