Mental health user-led activity as autonomous community action

Where do user-led groups fit in?

The NSUN Covid Fund

What do user-led groups need?

  • Available funds
  • Experiences of those currently running or managing
  • Sense of purpose
  • Existing local landscape
  • Changing makeup of members/users/community
  • Exposure to ideas, concepts and peers

Conclusion: communities solving community problems need more than just me giving long lectures
