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.

Feedback

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!

Testimonials

"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 Network helped me feel important again and stood next to me whilst my voice was finally heard, but together our voices together are louder.

After being silenced as a child and then as an adult too, The Sun Network are true to their title and all the work they do, as they helped me shine like the sun again. They encouraged me to be involved in things that i never could have dreamt of doing, all of which I am truly grateful for."

"The SUN Network made me feel like I had value again. When taking part in projects I felt I was listened to and what I had to say was taken seriously. They have helped me grow in my recovery and bridged the gap between someone who uses mental health services, and someone gaining potential employment."

"Being involved with the SUN Network has given me the opportunity to feel included, valued and informed on key decisions being undertaken by the CCG and CPFT.

My confidence has grown exponentially because of YOU and thank you doesn’t even begin to say how I feel.
Recently, I applied for a Peer Support Facilitator job with CPSL Mind, and I would NEVER have contemplated doing that before my involvement with you.

Today, just a little while ago, I found out that I GOT THE JOB!"

"Simply a pure joy attending these meetings
I lost a friend to suicide over 20 years ago now so I can talk really openly about it and I don’t fall apart anymore but I didn’t quite expect there to be so many instances of suicide, and I didn’t expect to feel so moved and feeling galvanised into wanting to help to do something about it. I have no idea how or what.
I was blown away at the response to those deaths as in, what they actually trigger in terms of the different organisations and partnership working that has to take place to look at patterns, prophylactic measures, interventions, and the wonderful work that I heard about yesterday and the joining up of teams such as the crisis care work from Modestas’ teams and Lifecraft teams etc.
I am looking forward to the next one. I love the fact that this is being taken seriously and that new thoughts are thrown out into these meetings and embraced rather than just shut down and forgotten about.
Charlotte, is so lovely, it was an absolute pleasure to meet her and I was really happy that she was there yesterday."
