Service details

Mind (Kensington and Chelsea) Service User Network

From: £0.00 To: £0.00 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.

Take a look at our leaflet to find out more.

And go to the KC Mind website for a wealth of information on the support available locally for people experiencing mental health problems.
