#WearYellow – Friday, 8th of October

On the 8th of October, pupils and staff at Oldmachar Academy will help spread the word that whatever you’re going through, you’re not alone with your mental health, by wearing something yellow and donating to YoungMinds.

It’s normal to have ups and downs – and this year might have felt a little more down than up. We’ve all felt the stress of lockdown, worries about the impact on our families and uncertainty about the future. But it’s the little things that have got us through it – the morning walks, singing in the shower, the perfect cuppa, that Netflix show that got us all buzzing, the heart-to-heart when you were at your wit’s end.

Things can get better. Saying #HelloYellow on the 8th, and on World Mental Health Day on the 10th of October, is a little thing we can do to make a BIG difference to young people’s mental health.
