Mental & Emotional

Starts With You


Who We Are


We are a group of people bringing together resources and tools on awareness, education, and hope to the city of Vienna, Austria. Anxiety, emotional distress, and depression can show up in our everyday lives - and in even life-threatening ways - for Vienna’s locals, expatriates, and refugees.

U!Shine Vienna shifts the conversations within Vienna’s communities to create an open, healthy, and accepting awareness and support for mental and emotional well-being.

What We Do

Share, Inform, Inspire

City-based events are additional ways we reach out, support, and help those living in Vienna.


This 7-part seminar series gives each person a better understanding of their mental and emotional health. Our holistic programs help individuals from all backgrounds understand the science of our emotions and feelings, find strength and hope in our communities, and learn practical tools to help them better their well being - mind, body, and spirit. The seminars are offered every other month. Come join us! 

Take It to Table

Similar to the vibe of a support group, Take It to Table offers participants a smaller, more in-depth discussion group as a follow-up to each one of U!Shine Vienna’s seminars. Here, we will spend more time in conversation to further educate ourselves on the previous seminar’s topic.

Community Night

We’re better together, especially when board games or movies are involved. Join us for monthly evenings of laid-back fun and entertainment!

Workshops, Outings, and Collaborative Events

We’ve always got something in the making. Check in every so often, either on this website, Facebook page, or Twitter, to stay up to date and register for tickets to our next event. You can also be the first to know about our calendar of events by subscribing to our newsletter.



Sharing our stories creates community. Community builds resilience. Authenticity produces empathy. It's here we hold a space for you to share, in your unique way, what matters to you—a testimony, vlog, an article you've found to be inspiring, or your latest piece of creative expression. Be heard, seen, and understood.

What others say about U!Shine Vienna

“I was new in Vienna. It was such a silent city for me. The bubbliest girl was no longer talkative. Then I found U!Shine Vienna, and it made me that girl again. I met so many people who were just like me. You can share any problems within this community. We meet together and share our happiness as well as our issues. U!Shine Vienna is now a home away from home! I am really lucky to have met this group.”
– Diksha Tiwari

“The U!Shine community of Vienna has shown a remarkable initiative in introducing to the Vienna community to a heightened awareness and education of mental health. This is a safe place for individuals to get support and figure out what the next steps are in order to achieve emotional and physical well-being within the challenging adversities of moving abroad."
