National Survivor User Network (NSUN)

< Back to directory

Overview

The National Survivor User Network (NSUN) is a network of people who have and do experience mental distress and want to change things for the better. NSUN connects people and influences policy, practice and perceptions by amplifying the experiences and aspirations of our members.

The network was set up to build a more united and confident mental health service user movement. It recognises the isolation, discrimination and disadvantage experienced by mental health service users and their needs beyond clinical treatment.

The Network provides information and practical support for user/survivor groups. Members have access to an online database of user/survivor-run groups across the UK and there are local groups in London.  Also produces a regular newsletter.

Membership form available via website.

The vision is for the lives of people who experience mental distress, discrimination and disadvantage to be better. The mission is to create a diverse, inclusive and influential user-led network with the strength to challenge inequality and improve lives.

Aims:

  • To create and strengthen links between individuals and groups
  • To support and promote user-led groups and initiatives
  • To influence and inform policy and decision-makers.
