We need to bring mental health into
the light.

Asking for help is not a weakness. As a matter of fact, asking for help is our superpower.

"The joy, the glitter, the tackling demons until they turn into angels... what you are doing SERIOUSLY matters. And rocks!"

“Most public mental health resources are only available to people in crisis, and even those remain largely inaccessible because they don’t engage people in the ways they like to be engaged.
PosiFest is changing that. We’re a real festival: it’s fun! You’re connecting with people, celebrating, playing together, and at the same time you’re picking up new life skills, tools and perspectives–backed by science–to help you make your world a more positive place”.
