Moreton School says #HelloYellow on World Mental Health Day
Moreton School is taking part in #HelloYellow on World Mental Health Day (10th October) to show young people they’re not alone with their mental health. Pupils at the school will wear yellow ribbons and share mental health messages to spread the word that, whatever you’re going through, you can talk to someone if you’re struggling to cope.
We will also raise vital funds for YoungMinds, the children and young people’s mental health charity, which has organised the event.
Mrs Humphreys, First Aid Officer, said “all aspects of our students Health and Welfare is paramount to us here at Moreton, and Mental Health is no exception”. Jade Zelkowicz, Community Fundraising Manager for YoungMinds, said: “We know that young people face a huge range of pressures, including exam stress, bullying and concerns about body image. When these pressures become overwhelming, it can be an incredibly isolating experience, and the smallest gesture of support can make a huge difference.
