World Mental Health Day Letter
1st October, 2019
World Mental Health Day
On Thursday 10th October it is World Mental Health Day. As part of our continued work surrounding young people’s mental health, wellbeing and promoting children’s rights we will be hosting a #HelloYellow event on behalf of the YoungMinds charity here at Laleham Gap School.
#HelloYellow aims to raise awareness of young people’s mental health and more importantly, aims to demonstrate to all young people with mental health issues that they are not alone.
As part of our participation on Thursday 10th October, we are holding a non-uniform day and encouraging all pupils and staff to wear their favourite item of yellow clothing or their favourite yellow costume.
If your child would like to take part and you are able, we are suggesting a £1 donation for participating in order to raise money for the YoungMinds charity and the important work that they do.
To find out more about the charity’s work, please visit their website, YoungMinds.org.uk.
Thank you for your continued support.
Head of Wellbeing
