Mental Health, Drugs and Alcohol and Co-Occurring Conditions
“Nothing about me without me” (Equity and Excellence: Liberating the NHS, July 2010). This relates to the concept of shared decision making with service users and carers being experts by their own experience.
The SUN Network exists to ensure high quality, appropriate Mental Health and drug and alcohol services are being delivered throughout Cambridgeshire and Peterborough to meet the needs of adults.
We do this by involving people who have experienced mental health challenges (and where possible their carers) and/or Drug and/or Alcohol use to work with commissioners to shape how these services are delivered now and in the future.
Here at the SUN Network, we have a joined-up approach to our work. This means we work collaboratively with service users and services to ensure the voice of service users is being heard. We have worked with many services and organisations, involving service users along the way.
