The charity YoungMinds is calling on schools across the country to take part in #HelloYellow on World Mental Health Day (10th October) to show young people they’re not alone with their mental health.
As part of the day, thousands of children and young people will wear something yellow to spread the word that, whatever you’re going through, you can talk to someone if you’re struggling to cope.
Jade Zelkowicz, Community Fundraising Manager for YoungMinds, said: “We want #HelloYellow to be a positive and fun way for children and young people to share the message that it’s okay to reach out for help. By wearing yellow trousers, a yellow wig or painting their nails yellow, children and teachers alike can show their support, and raise money at the same time. We hope that as many schools as possible will sign up and get involved.”
Research shows that
• Roughly three children in every school class have a mental health condition
• A staggering 90% of school leaders have reported an increase in the number of
students experiencing anxiety, stress or depression over the last five years
• The number of children and young people who have arrived at A&E with a
psychiatric condition has more than doubled since 2010
YoungMinds is a charity partner of Heads Together, the campaign spearheaded by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry to end the stigma around mental health. The charity also recently launched its Wise Up campaign, which calls on the government to re-balance the education system to make the well-being of students more of a priority in schools.
