We incorporated the focus of St Rita's College, 'Living Justly', into the vision for our yLead Project. The aspect of mental health we have chosen to act on is poor self-esteem. It can lead to serious anxiety and depressive disorders, so we wanted to cut off these mental illnesses at their roots. In an all-girls school, it is easy to fall into the trap of judging others and, perhaps more harshly, one's self. We worked on doing justice to others, letting the boost of self-worth that resulted from making a positive difference lead in to the next phase, doing justice to ourselves. Our ultimate aim was to eradicate negativity on the personal level so that self-acceptance could transcend into our relationships and community.
