The National Survivor User Network is only as strong as its membership. Effective networking is essential and NSUN is continuing to build a national database of mental health user-led organisations. An infrastructure that offers support, shares information and good practice and facilitates local networking and communication has been developed. Regular and well organised communication amongst the membership contributes to a national voice. It is your voice that feeds the national voice.
