The Sunshine Group is an independent peer-led user support group. The group was set up by Philip Bayes in January 2020 as he has been involved in peer support since 2012 as a service user with various groups and now wanted to help other people who are struggling.

One of our aims is to promote awareness of the World Mental Health Day (10th of October), an international event celebrated worldwide every year.

We are able to run this group thanks to the kind generosity of NSUN, National Survivor User Network who were kind enough to provide a grant to us to maintain our group online during these challenging times that we are facing. A link to NSUN can be found here:
