Welcome to Project Positive’s Virtual Toolkit....

We are a YSI group from St.Mary’s Secondary School, Ballina, Co.Mayo, we are Project Positive.

We wanted to create a Virtual toolkit to make it easier for you to access helpful resources and accurate information on mental health issues. We hope that our virtual toolkit is useful for everyone.

Our story:

We decided to make this virtual toolkit to help everyone who is having a bad day or is struggling with any mental health issues and needs some help. We don’t want anyone to feel isolated or lonely so we hope our toolkit helps you find comfort.
