Take part in #BePurpleDay!

#BePurpleDay is back for World Mental Health Day 2024!

Join us in turning Reading purple and showing local young people that they aren’t alone on 10th October

What is #BePurpleDay?

We established #BePurpleDay in 2023 as opportunity for social action from supporters in the community on World Mental Health Day!

As an awareness day that is celebrated across the globe, it felt important to lead a campaign, grounded in our local community, that shows young people their mental health matters and that they aren’t alone.

We are inviting local schools, businesses, community groups and individuals to come together on 10th October, wear a pop of purple, and raise funds to support young people’s mental health across RG postcodes!

Sign up to #BePurpleDay 2024!
