Welcome!

Voice Problem Support is the community for people with voice problems. It is where people with voice problems and professionals who work with people with voice problems can come together and share experiences, information and advice.

 

The aim of Voice Problem Support is to provide a strong support network for people with voice problems who so often suffer profound and under-acknowledged effects on their lives. By sharing aspects of this life-changing experience, we need not fight these challenges alone.

 

At Voice Problem Support, we also believe those with voice disorders should enjoy much better levels of recognition, understanding and support. We aim to raise awareness of the profound effects of a voice impairment to make our world a more voice problem friendly place! 

 

This community network was founded by The Lary Project, the UK's first charity specifically supporting people with voice problems.


The Lary Project was founded in 2008 and has worked online, via our website www.lary.org.uk, and offline, through a support group and other activities, to build a voice problem community and provide services to help address some of the challenges people with voice problems face.


The use of this site is subject to the same terms and conditions as The Lary Project's main site, see here.

TED Talk - Roger Ebert: Remaking my voice

 

When film critic Roger Ebert lost his lower jaw to cancer, he lost the ability to eat and speak. But he did not lose his voice. In a moving talk from TED2011, Ebert and his wife, Chaz, with friends Dean Ornish and John Hunter, come together to tell his remarkable story.

Interesting voice related stuff...

Some websites that may be of interest:

Our mother site: www.lary.org.uk - On the QT our review of voice problem friendly venues, information, reviews of voice assistance equipment and details of our support groups.

www.voiceproblem.org An excellent resource on voice problems. Clearly describes symptoms, treatments and areas of research. Highly recommended.

Living with a voice problem can have an impact on your mental health but with the right support, you can get to a better place. A number of charities offer support to people with emotional and mental health difficulties, including via email. For example, SANE, a UK mental health charity, provide an email based emotional support service staffed by volunteers, see www.sane.org.uk or email SANEmail@sane.org.uk
