WHY POSITIVE T-SHIRTS?
You are not alone! I love the message and values that the brand Positive T Shirts brings to our wider community. Suicide prevention and mental health awareness in Australia still has a long way to go, and it starts with us. Everyone has a story, and our life’s purpose is to share that story. A simple message on a t-shirt or hoodie can be the first step to opening up and starting a conversation with someone struggling.
We all need little reminders in our day that show us we are loved, valued and connected – let’s spread positive messages together and have more meaningful conversations. This is so much more than a t-shirt: I’d love to meet you all!
Paddy Colliar - @paddycolliar
Paddy is an all round good guy and Personal Trainer with a heart of gold and a passion for spreading awareness of mental health and the prevention of suicide. You may have seen him on TV as he has recently been on Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise. He writes...
"Being a personal trainer I’m lucky enough to build relationships with all my clients. Everyone has a story, everyone has a past weather it’s good or bad. Through out my PT career I have met some amazing people, that not only have I had an influence on them, but they have had huge influences on me in more ways than you could ever imagine.
I have had the privilege to help people that have low self confidence, suffer from anxiety and depression and unfortunately worst case scenario tried to self harm. The satisfaction of being able to reach out and lift someone from their deepest lows, to their highest highs, or even save a life is honestly like no other.
This is such a huge problem in society and it really does effect everyone at some point in their lives, so that is why I have happily jumped on board as an ambassador with Positive T Shirts, where all profits go to preventing and raising awareness for youth suicide, which is a cause really close to my heart.
Let’s make a big difference together!”

The Good trio!
Hi, we are siblings Ashlee, Curtis & Travis Good. It’s our honour and privilege to be Ambassadors for Positive T Shirts, a business that supports youth suicide prevention.
A little bit about us…
We grew up in the most wonderful family environment filled with lots of laughter, positive energy, incredible opportunities and a lot of self belief instilled in us. Through our school and sporting ventures we were blessed to be surrounded by role models and leaders within our community. All three of us have gone on to work in environments where we get to inspire kids to be the best versions of themselves, whether that’s in an education setting, on the sporting field or through a charity or organisation.
Why did we choose Positive T Shirts?
When we came across Positive T Shirts and the incredible energy Founder Neil brings to his business we knew we wanted to support in anyway we could. Ashlee loves spreading the message of hope and the importance of Talking Out Loud, whilst Curtis & Travis love their fashion. So, being involved in Positive T Shirts was a no brainer! We hope we can increase the exposure and spread the important message that this organisation conveys every single day. If we can change one life and help them see their future, then being ambassadors will have been the most worthwhile experience. We look forward to being involved for many more years to come!
