The #HelloYellow wristband

YoungMinds is a UK based charity whose mission is to ensure all young people get the best possible mental health support to enable them to overcome life's challenges.  The charity holds fundraising events, organises training and provides resources so all young minds are cared for and empowered, whatever the obstacle. 

Their most recent campaign, #HelloYellow , aims to get everyone wearing yellow for the upcoming World Mental Health Day to raise awareness and show that young people are not alone when it comes to their mental health. 

First year student at the College, Orla Mair, recently sought help from YoungMinds.  To show her thanks for their advice and assistance, Orla chose to design a yellow wristband to help support the #HelloYellow campaign.  Orla contacted YoungMinds about her wristband and they loved it so much, they are now selling them on their website in order to raise money. 

Well done to Orla and what a fantastic way of showing your appreciation for such a brilliant charity.
