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.
