Hearing voices that others can't hear, or seeing people that others can't see are signs that you are experiencing auditory and visual hallucinations. There are a number of mental health conditions that give rise to such hallucinations.
You might need to increase the dose of your current medicine. I also suggest you visit a psychiatrist to get a complete evaluation.
Depression and anxiety usually do not manifest with hallucinations.
