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.

"Imagine a community where we buddy up to keep each other accountable to our growth, where we openly discuss compassion, togetherness, vulnerability, and contemplating what we can do for the world's well-being. This is the community that PosiFest gives you access to. Our rainbow butterfly logo symbolises to me a new direction of humanity that promotes the acceptance of the full rainbow of human beings, and of human emotions."
