STUN is an independent, user-led charity run by and for people with lived experience of mental health issues. Our membership covers the Stirling Council area.

We believe that people with knowledge based on real lived experience of mental illness are best placed to know what works for them. We believe people can and do recover from mental health problems. STUN aims to work with all 'stakeholders' (people and organisations with an interest in mental health - service providers, supports, users and carers) to improve the services available and to empower people to access them as part of their recovery journey.

The Scottish Recovery Network (SRN) was formally launched in 2004 as an initiative designed to raise awareness of recovery from mental health problems.

See Me is Scotland's programme to tackle mental health stigma and discrimination. We are funded by the Scottish Government and Comic Relief, and managed by SAMH and the Mental Health Foundation. Our vision is to end mental health stigma and discrimination, enabling people who experience mental health problems to live fulfilled lives.

VOX is a National Mental Health Service User Led organisation, we work in partnership with mental health and related services to ensure that service users get every opportunity to contribute positively to changes in the services that serve them and wider society.

Our main aim is to improve the way in which we, as users of mental health services, are treated by campaigning to improve the rights, services and treatment of people with mental health problems, and to challenge stigma and discrimination.

AdvoCard is a service user-led, independent advocacy organisation. Our services are primarily for people with experience of mental ill-health in Edinburgh. We provide opportunities for people to participate more effectively in decisions that affect all aspects of their lives.

User and Carer Involvement is a Scottish Charity operating across the Dumfries and Galloway Region to ensure that people who have mental illness, dementia or learning disabilities, and their carers have a representative voice and, as a result, see positive changes in their service provision.

At the Mental Health Network (Greater Glasgow) we believe that the people who use mental health services have gained valuable knowledge about those services. This knowledge can provide the planners and providers with ideas that could make the services better for everyone involved.

Service user and carer involvement is an important part of the social work degree programmes at the University of Stirling. Unity was established in 2005 in recognition of the important contribution that people who use services have to make to social work education. Unity members are a supportive group of people who have previously, or who continue to use social work services.
