The Shine Mental Health Network has been shortlisted for a national award to celebrate best practice across the UK.
This year’s Health Services Journal Awards attracted a record number of entries.
The Shine network connects people and organisations involved in or with experience of mental health problems and puts them in touch with each other and the support or services they need.
Founder member Chris Allen said Shine was praised for innovation in mental health.
“It was a welcome boost to all those that have been involved in development of the Shine Network,” he said.
“What I am proud of is that we have got a really flourishing network of groups and organisations that are able to support people with mental health challenges and their carers.”
