NSUN is a membership organisation and a network of grassroots, user-led community mental health groups and people who have lived experience of mental ill-health, distress, and trauma. NSUN connects, supports, and amplifies the voices and work of these members. As a user-led organisation, all of our staff members and trustees have lived experience.

We work to redistribute power and resource in mental health. We do this by:

  • Building, amplifying and distributing the knowledge that is held by people with lived experience
  • Creating collaborative spaces with members and partners to build momentum and sustainability for the work
  • Building an alternative approach to mental health policy work
  • Working with funders and acting as a microfunder to redistribute resources to grassroots user-led groups, as well as working to build capacity and sustainability in other, non-material ways
