The aims of the project are described by the MHAI as being:  To promote an awareness among young people of the concept of positive mental health  To promote an awareness of the causes and effects of mental illness  To promote positive attitudes to mental health and ill-health Some 200 teams from post-primary schools throughout Ireland participate in the project each year. The project is now in its twentieth year and is recognised as the cornerstone of the MHAIís education programme. As a result the organisation requested that the impact of the project be evaluated in 2001.
