Lockdown is having a devastating effect on children and young people’s mental health. It’s been unbelievably hard, but together, we can make a difference and show young people they are not alone.
Join thousands of schools, offices and community groups on Friday 9 October by taking part in #HelloYellow and raising vital funds to support our work.
It’s simple: wear yellow, get fundraising and have fun!
Whether we’re all two-metres apart, back to normal or locked-down and keeping it virtual our #HelloYellow kits are filled with ideas for a fun-filled day on 9 Oct!
Dig out your neon socks, custard scarf and banana hat - let's show young people they're not alone with their mental health!
We know the mental health and wellbeing of your students is incredibly important to you. We also know this is a stressful time and teachers are juggling a lot right now. That’s why our fundraising kit contains a special mental health lesson plan, wellbeing tips and fun wellbeing activities for you and your class – whether pupils are back in school buildings or not on Friday 9 Oct. When you sign up we’ll also send you new resources and tips on how to fundraise online.
You, your colleagues and your students all need something to look forward to. Let’s come together to feel positive about the future.
For offices, workplaces and community groups
We know you and the young people in your lives have been going through a difficult time, and it can be hard to feel positive. But you’re not alone. Let’s join our friends, colleagues and loved ones in a show of solidarity. By taking part in #HelloYellow, your support means YoungMinds can help even more young people and their families at a time when it's needed most.
Anyone can get involved in #HelloYellow, no matter who or where you are! All you need to do is wear something yellow on 9 October, take a selfie and post on social media using #HelloYellow – don’t forget to tag us @YoungMindsUK – and donate what you can to YoungMinds.
