World Mental Health Day

Tuesday 10th October is World Mental Health Day and we would like children to come to school on that day dressed all in yellow or with a splash of yellow for youth mental health charity YoungMinds’ campaign in support of young people’s mental health. Please either bring a £1 or pay your donation via ParentPay. #HelloYellow campaign calls on people to stand together in support of young people struggling with their mental health, to show they matter and deserve the help they need, when they need it, no matter what.Any money raised will help YoungMinds to support young people, so they don’t feel alone with their mental health. TRJS pupils will join thousands of schoolchildren across the country swapping their school uniform for #HelloYellow at a time when more children and young people than ever before are struggling with their mental health. Over 1.2m under 18s were referred to children and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) last year, an increase of 53% since 2019.

Children in school will continue with some work started last July on ‘Brain Breaks’ and what we can do to help ourselves if we are feeling dysregulated or ‘wobbly’. Look out for more information about this in next week’s newsletter. At TRJS we are committed to supporting our children’s mental health and wellbeing. If you would like any information about this or have any questions, or ideas for how we can further develop this, please contact Mrs K-D
