#HelloYellow campaign in support of World Mental Health Day
Students helped to brighten up the school day by wearing yellow to mark World Mental Health Day.
The national #HelloYellow campaign aims to raise awareness of mental health issues and the support available to young people.
Students were encouraged to wear a yellow accessory ahead of World Mental Health Day on Saturday.
The event, which was organised by TCA’s Mental Health Lead Mrs Morley, was held in support of YoungMinds and to show young people they’re not alone with their mental health. Yellow ribbons were put up around school to raise awareness of the event.
