You might have noticed a lot of people (maybe even yourself) wearing yellow today. That is because annually on the Friday nearest to World Mental Health Day, YoungMinds encourages people to take part in 'Hello Yellow' to raise funds, and show young people they are not alone in their Mental Health.
"Saying #HelloYellow today is a little thing we can do to make a BIG difference to young people's mental health. Because a little yellow goes a long way." (YoungMinds)
We believe too that no young person should be alone in their mental health and that improvements nationally and globally need to be made a priority. We support the important work YoungMinds do. Head over to their website to see their resources for young people.
