#HelloYellow World Mental Health Day
We will be supporting the #HelloYellow World Mental Health Day this year on Thursday 10th October.
Staff and students will be invited to wear an item of yellow clothing to help spread the word that whatever you’re going through, you can talk to someone if you are struggling to cope. This will be an awareness day, not a charity event. Students may come into school on Thursday 10th October wearing something yellow alongside their usual uniform (socks, jumper, badge etc). There is no pressure for all students to take part but all are welcome to show their support should they wish to.
We have been running a well-being programme in school for the past year to raise awareness and help those who need it. This includes dedicated regular tutor time activities for all years looking at stress and well-being. With the change in the PSHE curriculum, we have also introduced mindfulness sessions into lessons. As always we continue to have self-help books in the library for students to use at their leisure.
Please take time to have a look at www.youngminds.org.uk - it is a fantastic resource for students and adults and focuses on how and when to access help should it be needed.
