Thursday 27 July 2023, 4:00–5.30pm
Starting July 2023, we’ll be hosting open online meetings on the third Thursday of the month. These meetings are for members who want to connect with others shifting power in mental health. Maybe you’re part of a user-led group supporting your community, maybe you campaign for change, or maybe you want to get more involved in the network.
The space will be relaxed – there’s no requirement to stay for the whole time, you can keep your camera on or off, and there’ll be lots of different opportunities to talk, listen and connect with other members.
Spaces for this meeting are limited so please check your availability before registering, and email us at email@example.com if you can no longer attend.
You will need to be an NSUN member to get your joining link – please sign up here if you are not already a member.
What to expect from the meeting
In this introductory first meeting, NSUN’s policy team will present their recent blog post ‘Outsourcing morality: the dangers of private detention in mental health and beyond‘ and explore the intersections between the privatisation of mental health facilities, prisons and immigration removal centres.
NSUN’s Conduct Agreement
We want virtual NSUN spaces to be safe, welcoming, and inclusive. Harassment, hate speech, and inappropriate behaviour of any kind, verbal or in the chat/Q&A, will not be tolerated.
We reserve the right to immediately remove any attendee we consider to be in breach of this conduct agreement. This includes anyone making racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist, or otherwise discriminatory, offensive, or hateful remarks.
Removed participants will not be able to re-join the session, or, if applicable, join any of the rest of the sessions in a day or series of events. In order to avoid the derailing of sessions we will not enter into conversations around why conduct was deemed inappropriate in the sessions themselves.
This meeting is free to attend. It is for NSUN members (individuals with lived experience of mental ill-health, distress, and/or trauma, as well as grassroots, user-led mental health groups.) If you are not already a member, sign up for free here.
NSUN is a charity and membership organisation of people and grassroots groups with lived experience of mental ill-health, trauma and distress, working towards the redistribution of power and resource in mental health. You can find out more about us here.
