Mental health knowledge built by service users and survivors

 

Welcome to the Survivor Researcher Network (SRN)

 

The Survivor Researcher Network is  a UK based user-controlled network for mental health service users and survivors with an interest in research.

Previously hosted by NSUN,  we are now an independent network and  Community Interest Company. We are seeking funding to continue to develop the SRN as a network for survivor researchers together with undertaking research, and offering mentoring, training and consultancy.

This is a developing website which aims to provide opportunities for discussion, survivor research resources, articles, and news. You can register with the site to take part in the discussion forums and submit blog articles. We welcome feedback.

You can read more about the SRN  on our About Us page
