Staff wear yellow for World Mental Health Day

Staff involved in the mental wellbeing of children and young people in Doncaster wore yellow on World Mental Health Day (10 October) in support of Young Minds #HelloYellow campaign.

The Children’s Care Group including the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS), Single Point of Contact 0-5 teams at The Mary Woollett Centre and teams within schools and at East Laith Gate used the day to spread the word about mental health and wellbeing for children and young people.

The CAMHS team at East Laith Gate encouraged young people and their parents to write their thoughts and draw pictures of inspiration on bunting. Members of the team added words of advice and information about mental health and wellbeing and displayed the bunting in their waiting area.

The team at The Mary Woollett Centre displayed bright yellow bunting and promoted the Young Minds campaign with their colleagues within the centre.

Christina Harrison, Children’s Care Group Director for the Trust, said: “Our staff are very passionate about care they provide to children and young people who have mental health needs. They used World Mental Health Day to demonstrate that children, young people and families are not alone when it comes to their mental health and wellbeing.”
