How Events are Sorted:

First, at the top of the list: Disaster Hotline & Oregon Safe + Strong Helpline.

Next in the list: Bundled “All Day” Events for organizations with events happening at multiple times throughout the day and/or in many formats or locations; these are bundled into a single listing to prevent endless scrolling.  Usually these offer a lookup by zip code or other criteria. 

Lastly, Time-Specific Events listed by start time from 12:01am early morning to 11:59pm late night.  Warmlines and places east of Oregon’s time zone tend to start earlier (e.g. 4am in Oregon is 7am in New York).

If you have any questions,

We are:

* Friendly, respectful, supportive, and caring

* Open-minded (no preconceived notions, explanations, etc.)

* Welcoming to both experiencers and supporters

* Not “judgy”

* A social meeting (not a therapy group)

* Free to change our minds at anytime

* Here because we want to be (each person is free to come and go from the meeting)

In our meetings, we:

* Share our personal experiences

* Honor and accept each others’ experiences

* Don’t try to talk others out of their experiences or the meaning they make from them

* Make no assumptions regarding why others are here

* Prefer common, easily-understood language that reflects the experience of the person sharing

* Want each person to take care of themselves as they need, such as by leaving the group or taking a break

* When requested, give personal reflections (feedback) on others’ sharing

* Maintain a confidential space

* Aim for an attitude of radical forgiveness

8. We are free to talk about anything.

9. We are free to change our minds at any time.

logoPacific Rim Hearing Voices Network – A regional network specifically serving the Pacific Northwest and Pacific Island regions.  These online groups are for people who experience (or have experienced) voices, visions, extreme states and other unshared realities, as well as for people who directly support someone at home with these experiences.  We are working to build community in Oregon, Washington and the Pacific Islands.

All frameworks are welcome.

These online groups fully adhere to the Pacific Rim HVN Charter. These groups are non-judgmental, do not assume illness, and are not considered treatment or therapy. Pacific Rim HVN groups are social gatherings for people with lived experience to come together and share those experiences in an atmosphere of open-mindedness and mutual respect. Sharing your story, as well as receiving feedback from others, is always optional.

Our groups are hosted on Zoom and are available via computer, tablet, smartphone or landline.

Groups are designated for specific regions but are also OPEN to people from other geographical areas.
