Ali McDowall is the Co-Founder of The Positive Planner. As the Creative Director of the Company she leads the product development side of the business and also curates workshops on how creative writing and expression in other forms can positively impact our lives. Her own experience of low mental health was the catalyst to create something that could help others make theirs a priority. Self care, gratitude, resilience and emotional literacy all play a big part in the journals and workshops and hope to install users with the toolbox to keep themselves mentally healthy.
