Welcome to Shine

Connecting People

is an award winning network of people and organisations involved in or with experience of mental health and mental ill health and distress. We think we can do a lot to put people in touch with each other, and to help them work more closely and effectively together.

This site is designed to help make that happen providing a place where people can exchange information about themselves and what they do.

You can browse the site freely without registering and use our outcome based search engine to try and locate opportunities for you to access helpful people and services. Check out the calendar to see what mental health relevant events are coming up in Lincolnshire read notices of activities, events, opportunities or current information posted on the noticeboard or connect to Shine through Facebook or Twitter.

But more than that, you can also register as a subscriber to the site and post information about yourself and what you do on to your own subscribers page, or advertise an event on the calendar or post a view or some useful information on the noticeboard.  You can also subscribe to the site by sending your information to our Administrator to inserted for you.
