For World Mental Health Day, join thousands of schools, offices, community groups and individuals in wearing yellow to raise vital funds for YoungMinds.
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. Together we can look out for one another and feel hopeful about the future.
So whether it's with your school, colleagues, family or groups in your community, join us for #HelloYellow on Friday 9 October and help fundraise for YoungMinds. We want everyone to wear something yellow! Whether it's your neon socks, custard scarf, or full-on banana suit - let's show young people they're not alone with their mental health!
Looking after our wellbeing has never been more important. 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.
This year #HelloYellow will take place on Friday 9 October, 2020.
By signing up you will receive your free #HelloYellow Fundraising Kit full of ideas to help you make the most of the day, along with mental health lesson plans for schools, and wellbeing activities for your workplace or home.

Why fundraise online at school this year?

Don’t forget to include information about the benefits of taking part in #HelloYellow when sharing your fundraising page, especially when looking after our children and young people’s wellbeing has never been more important.
