The latest news
The English philosopher Francis Bacon said that 'knowledge is power' and we at NSUN seek to empower our members with the latest mental health news. We have several ways to do this:
You can read previous articles written for the Homepage news service here. These articles help to keep our members up to date with the latest mental health news and share what we're doing on a weekly basis.
Here, you can read all our news articles, old and new.
Weekly news ebulletin
Our weekly ebulletin goes to all members that we have an email address for every Monday morning.
If you are not a member you can sign up for free here. The page offers three membership types: individual, group or ally - and explains the difference between these categories. Once you have decided which category describes you best, please open its corresponding registration page, put in your details and make sure you scroll down to the 'information updates' paragraph and tick the boxes to receive the ebulletin.
Website and social media
NSUN also shares information and communicates with people through:
- This website
- news articles: latest and archive
- mental health events
- mental health jobs
- help and support
- membership area (you need to register for free to access this)

We know that not everyone uses the internet or has email so twice a year we also produce a printed newsletter which is sent to all members, with bulk copies also being distributed by many NHS mental health trusts and local groups.
When you register, please make sure you tick the box to receive the newsletter in the 'information updates' paragraph on the registration areas. If you would like extra copies please contact us, please don't forget to tell us how many more copies you need.
