Suffolk User Forum is the user-led mental health charity for east and west Suffolk. Our work focuses on you, and your well-being. We are an inclusive and trusted charity who values your voice above all. Our network promotes and strengthens your voice to create a positive change in independence, choice, and control over your own life. All our trustees, staff, and volunteers have experienced mental health issues, which is why our team can genuinely understand what is going on, and be able to help in any situation. We are dedicated to helping everyone understand what mental health is about, and what we can do to help each person.
What we do - SUF is led by mental health service users and family carers. We work closely with individual mental health service users and their families. We share service user feedback to help decision-makers ensure the appropriate support and services are available to improve people’s emotional well-being and mental health.
Our Mission is to be an inclusive and trusted mental health user led network that values, promotes and strengthens the user voice for positive change, independence, human rights, choice and control.
Our Vision is to become the leading organisation in Suffolk championing equal and valued partnerships between mental health service users, commissioners and providers; combining mutual strengths and experience to improve services, achieving ‘emotional well-being and mental health for all’.
