LITTLE MOMENTS 2020: 41/52: WEARING YELLOW FOR MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS

In the week I had an email from Blake's school that on Friday they wanted us to encourage him to wear a yellow top to school. This was because of World Mental Health Day being on the Saturday and they were planning to do a special assembly to raise awareness.



Luckily Blake has a mustard yellow top and jumper as it's a colour I love for the autumn season. On Friday when we popped him into them he was a bit confused and we tried to explain to him what was happening. He was eventually OK with the idea but wouldn't let me take a photo.

 I think it's great that school chose to raise awareness for World Mental Health Day. I feel it's such an important topic as it's not just adults that struggle with their mental health. I wish as a child I had known more about depression and anxiety as it would've been a big help to understand what I was feeling as at times I felt awfully alone.
