The SUN Network

We are here to help you make a difference! Who better to talk about Mental Health and Drug & Alcohol services in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough than those who have accessed them. You are the experts on what this journey is like for you, and your voice can influence and shape how those services work in future. We can amplify your voice and create opportunities for you to be involved by attending workshops or meetings, sharing your experience (anonymously if preferred) or taking part by giving feedback on services you may have accessed.


Regular feedback and consultations are your opportunity to share your experiences and help shape future mental health, drug and alcohol services. We want to know what is working well and where care needs to be improved. Contact us and look out for opportunities to share your experience, be heard and have your say.

The Five Values

At the SUN Network we evaluate mental health and drug and alcohol services based on your five values.

The SUN Network has worked together with people that have accessed/do access or care for someone who accesses mental health services across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough to establish the top 5 values that they would like to see delivered by mental health services. The top five values are:

·         Working together

·         Honesty

·         Empathy

·         Personalisation

·         Inclusion

We evaluate services based on our five values with the help of paid volunteer peer assessors. We then write up a report on the values and deliver it to the service along with a star rating which can be shown off by the service to show good practice!

“As STP clinical mental health lead I have found the input/support from the SUN invaluable. Feedback from our service users and carers has led to transformation of services including our First Response Crisis Mental Health Service and Primary Integrated Mental Health Service (PRISM) which are nationally recognised in the NHS Long Term Plan. We could not have achieved the transformation required without proactive coproduction throughout the commissioning process, SUN ensure that they are represented on all our key mental health delivery boards. The SUN have supported us in our quest for a genuinely integrated mental health service which breaks down the barriers between primary, secondary, mental health /physical health and health and social care and puts the patient at the heart of all that we do – so a big thank you to the SUN team!”

"The SUN has given me confidence in myself that I have something to offer and am able to work as part of a team to achieve goals in specific relate to mental illness through the Five Values Project. This confidence meant I applied and acquired a paid role in a national mental health charity and have now worked there for one year."

“The Sun Network has been very inspiring to me and very supportive, they have raised my confidence levels and generated ideas on ways for me to move forward, I have had an input into local health and mental health services and they have helped me to help myself and my local community.”

“The Sun Network facilitates the voice of service users, enabling us to hear the valuable experiences individuals have of local services, directly communicating the strengths and areas for improvement enabling us to be responsive and work collaboratively to make positive changes to service delivery.”
