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.
We want to be the strongest voice around how Mental Health and Drug and Alcohol services should look and that is YOUR voice. Join us as a member and help improve mental health services.

The Five Values
At the SUN Network we evaluate mental health and drug and alcohol services based on our 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
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!
Get in touch! You can contact us through email, phone or in person, we don’t mind!

“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.”
