WNUSP - World Network of Users and Survivors of Psychiatry
Welcome to the website of WNUSP

The World Network of Users and Survivors of Psychiatry, WNUSP, is a global forum and voice of users and survivors of psychiatry, to promote our rights and interests.

WNUSP brings together member organizations and individuals from Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Europe, and North, Central and South America.  WNUSP members are persons, and organizations of persons, who identify themselves as users, ex-users and/or survivors,  as persons with lived experience of madness / mental health problems / psychosocial disabilities and/or have used or survived psychiatry / mental health services.

WNUSP is an organization run and governed entirely by users and survivors, and is the only independent, global, grassroots organization of persons with psychosocial disabilities themselves.

WNUSP advocates for the human rights of persons with psychosocial disabilities worldwide. WNUSPs activities mainly comprises human rights advocacy at the global international level.

WNUSP has ECOSOC consultancy status at the United Nations, and since the start of negotiations of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, WNUSP has been involved in this process.
