The members of the Hearing Voices Choir all suffer from significant mental illnesses such as schizophrenia and live in the Northern Rivers of NSW. The documentary was commissioned by the Non-Government Organisation New Horizons both to advocate the need for more assistance in the field of mental health and to present a "road to recovery". This film has been enjoyed by mental health service providers, consumers and the general public alike. The documentary is screened at conferences throughout Australia. It enjoys ongoing use in secondary and tertiary education as a teaching aid and was also used for reporting purposes to show how government money had been spent.
