Next Steps - Nothing About Us Without Us

The Next Steps project, a project of RUN-UP (Redbridge User Network User Pressure Group) is all about developing and promoting the skills, confidence and capacity of people with lived experience of mental health problems - in particular to promote a mental health ‘voice’ in the community.
