The Survivor Researcher Network is a UK based user-controlled network for mental health service users and survivors with an interest in research. They are currently a hosted project here at NSUN. They will soon be relaunching the Survivor Researcher Network as an independent network and Community Interest Company and are seeking funding to continue to develop the SRN as a network for survivor researchers together with undertaking research, and offering mentoring, training and consultancy.

Please see below for news from SRN on their new website, CIC status, and newsletter.

New website

We have built a new specific website for SRN at Please visit!

It has a News and Views section where you will be able to find the information that later goes on this bulletin. We’ve set up the site to be interactive so you can discuss research issues in the Forum section and submit blog articles for publication. We are hoping to gradually build up the content over the coming months. The Resources section will include links to survivor research writings.

We encourage you visit, register and interact with the site. We need feedback on how the site works for you, so we can deal with any issues as we continue to develop it. You can feedback via the website forum or email us at

Survivor Researcher Network C.I.C

Our funding and hosting with NSUN are ending later this year. The SRN working group have now registered SRN as a community interest company, and we are seeking commissions and alternative sources of funding. We hope to involve and develop a large survivor researcher membership for the company with directors subject to periodic re-election. There will be more news on this in the coming months.
