Hearing voices

My sister is hearing that neighbours are calling her name. She is hearing that they are planning to make her mad and to kill her and to handover her to police. She is asking for help over facebook from many. She rang police 4-5 times to help her. She spend maximum of her time by sitting beside window..hearing conversation of neighbours and hearing about her what they are actually not saying. She is saying that neighbours are saying there friends to call her mad and witch while passing by in front of our house. one day near 4 am she called our maternal uncle and told that some people are shouting in neighborhood.

Is ur sister staying all day alone.??
What does she do the whole day?!
How does she spends the day and time?
I think as she is alone she tends to feel all these conversations. Of somebody is there around she can slowly come out of this.
Loneliness could also also be one of the reason for these behaviour.
Next Steps
Do consult a psychiatrist and also a counsellor for her to share her emotions and feelings to someone who is ready to listen to her.
