Let’s find something to be hopeful about this #HelloYellow
We all need hope. It’s what keeps us going when times are tough. But with everything going on this year as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, it may feel harder than usual to find things to be hopeful about. But as our Activist Samantha says, “there is always something to be hopeful for, even in the bleakest of times.”
That’s why next Friday 9 October, thousands of schools, companies and community groups will come together for #HelloYellow to show young people that there is lots to be hopeful about, while raising vital funds to help us continue our fight for children and young people’s mental health. Will you join us?
Your guide to mental health support
Seeking help for your mental health can feel overwhelming. That’s why we’ve worked with young people to create our guide to support, with lots of information, tips and advice on reaching out for help, CAMHS, counselling and therapy, inpatient care and more.
