Welcome to mindshare

mindshare is a creative mental health community and online platform that provides a voice for those with lived experience of mental illness.

It is a space where anyone and everyone can share personal experiences or thoughts connected to mental health, either in everyday observations or through art and storytelling. mindshare welcomes all original creative work—short stories, poetry, blog posts, podcasts, paintings, music recordings, photography, mini documentaries and much more.
