Service details

Mind (K&C) Service User Network

Not Specified none from Mind (Kensington and Chelsea)

Mind's Service User Network, or SUN, as it is more commonly referred to, was set up to expand and develop work originating from the K&C Forum and the Black Unity Forum. Building on the experience of local and national user groups, the SUN exists to create a network of users and survivors who care about mental health issues and who want to be part of a dynamic and influential movement.

Our aims

To foster a better understanding of people suffering from mental distress

To ensure that users and survivors of mental health services have a direct say in influencing, shaping and delivering local mental health services; and particularly those from BME communities and other represented groups

How the SUN is organised

The SUN is a volunteer based project, working across a number of activity groups designed to deliver the aims of the project. The work of the SUN is managed by the project manager and part time co-ordinator. Volunteers are drawn from the SUN membership.
