The Team

We bring awareness of the prevalence of mental health disorders and educate participants on the warning signs and symptoms of common mental disorders such as anxiety and depression. We share with them how their mind, body, and self are connected as well as the importance of a holistic mental health plan.

We bring education through our U!Shine Vienna seminars, which are available for everyone, and which give participants a better understanding of their mental and emotional health and educates them on the importance of a holistic approach to mental well-being. Participants also learn the importance of resilience. Resilience isn't about avoiding failure, it’s about embracing failure, learning from our mistakes, and bouncing back stronger. Together, we spur one another on to success.

We bring hope through story-telling and a transparent approach of educating. We show individuals the number of beautiful, kind, and talented people in this world who live full lives despite a diagnosis with mental illness and/or emotional challenges. We make it more acceptable to talk about, and easier to address, and in the process, shatter stigmas. We let them know they aren't alone, that we are here as a community of support, and we encourage them to look beyond themselves and be aware of those around them that might be struggling.

We meet you exactly where you are.
