SUN Project

The SUN Project is for people who have longstanding emotional and behavioural problems (personality disorder), and who may feel they do not get adequate support from mainstream services.

It has been designed for service users and in consultation with them.

The SUN aims to reduce the common experiences of isolation and being overwhelmed by feeling stuck in a pattern of behaviour.

One aim is to help people become ‘experts by experience’, and some members may then go on to be employed as SUN group facilitators by the Trust. They would then be given ongoing support and training within the staff team .The SUN aims to be inclusive and diverse, meeting the needs of all, including those previously marginalized in society.

Service Definitions

Services providing advice and information relating to all aspects of mental health.
It is common for someone with a personality disorder to be impulsive, have high levels of sensitivity, be aggressive, attention seeking and overly dependent on others. However there is a lot of debate about this disorder. The World Health Organisation defines them as "deeply ingrained and enduring behaviour patterns, manifesting themselves as inflexible responses to a broad range of personal and social situations."
Groups or organisations set up to support the specific needs of mental health service users, and their carers.
