It’s All in My Head! A Story About Hearing Voices
Mick Deschrijver (author), Nicole Schnackenberg (translator)
‘It’s All in My Head!’ is Mick’s story. Mick is a normal Dutch guy who hears voices inside his head other people can’t hear. Is he crazy, psychotic, or a schizophrenic? Mick’s answer to all of these questions is a resounding ‘NO!’ Mick is just a very creative human being! Mick sat down one day and started to illustrate his voices. Taking these illustrations as a starting point, he introduces you to his voices and guides you through the journey he made with these voices. This is a unique and creative story. It is a book of hope for voice hearers, family members, and anyone who is interested in the phenomenon of hearing voices.
