Brighten up someone's day for World Mental Health Awareness Day

Posted by Fran Russo on 6 October 2020

To mark World Mental Health Awareness Day on Saturday 10th October, we are supporting the Young Minds Campaign to have a #HelloYellow Day this Friday 9th October.

#HelloYellow is about showing that young people (and all of us) should not have to feel alone with our mental health, but support each other to look after our wellbeing and to seek help if we need it.

The Source Team are raising awareness of the #HelloYellow message with the young people they work with, with staff and managers throughout Suffolk County Council's Children's and Young People's Services.

We are inviting people to join in with sharing their funny yellow selfies with each other in support of young people's mental health.
