What is #HelloYellow
More children and young people than ever before are seeking help with their mental health, but fewer than one in ten find it easy to get the support they need.
By wearing yellow on World Mental Health Day, you can show young people that they’re not alone when it comes to their mental health.
If you're struggling with your mental health, check out our Find Help section.
