Message from Dean Russell MP to Beechfield School to mark World Mental Health Day


Lockdown is having a devastating effect on children and young people’s mental health. It’s been unbelievably hard, but together, we can make a difference and show young people they are not alone.

Join thousands of schools, offices and community groups on Friday 9 October by taking part in #HelloYellow and raising vital funds to support our work. It’s simple: wear yellow, get fundraising and have fun!

Dig out your neon socks, custard scarf and banana hat - let's show young people they're not alone with their mental health.
