The campaign is being spearheaded by HeadsUp, a youth project run by Rehab geared towards promoting mental health among 15-24 year-olds.

"HeadsUp wants to focus on the importance of promoting good mental well-being," said Collette Ryan, HeadsUp's project manager.

"Now, more than ever, Ireland needs a lift and an act of kindness to a friend or stranger will not only make their day better but can also boost your own mental health.

"Offering help and assistance or even just a friendly word or warm smile can make all the difference to a person's day."
