The Service User Network (S.U.N) is a group peer support service which helps people cope with personality disorder and emotional/behavioural difficulties.
It aims to help service users feel more supported, less excluded and more empowered. This is achieved through learning new coping strategies, which can help people have fewer crises, and be able to access other services more simply when needed.
S.U.N works alongside mainstream services. There is no emergency provision available but groups link in with emergency services when necessary.
|Who is the service for?:|
The service is open to adults with or without a formal diagnosis and whether or not they are currently accessing existing services and living in either Sutton, Merton, Wandsworth, Kingston or Richmond.
Groups meet in community venues, creating a structure of regular contact, support and advice.
|How to refer:|
Entry is by self-referral and people who use the service are known as S.U.N. members. It operates an open-door policy and, to join, members only have to complete a Crisis and Support plan in a S.U.N. group.
