NSUN network for mental health is an independent, service-user-led charity that connects people with experience of mental health issues to give us a stronger voice in shaping policy and services.
Many of us will be affected by distress and disadvantage at some point in our lives. Alll of our work is led by people who have personal experience of mental distress. NSUN's user-led nature is what sets it apart from other organisations in the field, and gives it unique insight and authenticity.
Our network connects people, communicates with people and works to influence things for the better.
Last year we sent out over 130 ebulletins and worked with over 1000 people. We ensured that the direct voice of people was heard at policy level as well as at a local level - not by proxy via large organisations with their own organisational agendas.
NSUN is a small charity with low overheads, but high activity. We directly employ people who have had experience of distress and severe disadvantage.
We need your help to ensure that people experiencing mental distress are able to have a voice and make a difference. By donating your money or time you can help us reach as many people as possible through our national network.
Making a regular donation will help us to continually campaign for better treatment and alternative ways of providing support when needed.
Help us raise £10,000 to commemorate 10 years of survival and to help us thrive over the next 10 years. NSUN is about people 'doing it for themselves' with the right help, at the right time, in the right place.
It is 10 years since the Doing it for ourselves’ service user conference in Birmingham. It was at this conference in 2006 that the vision of the National Survivor User Network (NSUN) was taken forward, leading to funding in 2007 and becoming a fully independent organisation in May 2010.
We have survived! To enable us to continue to connect, communicate and influence, we need your help.
We want to continue to communicate weekly with over 5000 people. Please spread the word to help raise funds to continue our work through our #NSUNthrive10 campaign.
