Depends...: The quality and quantity of the voices determine if there is a psychiatric disorder, although hearing voices does usually mean a psychotic process is extant. But, extreme manic states, drug-induced states and genuine psychic abilities also produce "voices." This one calls for a professional evaluation by either a psychologist or psychiatrist.
