This is a TED Talk video of Eleanor Longden, where she talks about her recovery from schizophrenia and her role in the Hearing Voices movement. With a Masters in Psychology, Eleanor now defines herself as a 'Voice Hearer'. Very inspirational!

From the TED.com site:
To all appearances, Eleanor Longden was just like every other student, heading to college full of promise and without a care in the world. That was until the voices in her head started talking. Initially innocuous, these internal narrators became increasingly antagonistic and dictatorial, turning her life into a living nightmare. Diagnosed with schizophrenia, hospitalized, drugged, Longden was discarded by a system that didn't know how to help her. Longden tells the moving tale of her years-long journey back to mental health, and makes the case that it was through learning to listen to her voices that she was able to survive.

Eleanor Longden overcame her diagnosis of schizophrenia to earn a master's in psychology and demonstrate that the voices in her head were "a sane reaction to insane circumstances."
