Wear Blue for Wellbeing 

Bullying can have a massive impact on your mental and emotional health. Research has shown that if you’re bullied as a child or teen, you might be twice as likely to use mental health services as an adult. It doesn't matter if you're being bullied at school, at work, home or online, bullying can mess with your head. But you're not alone, and you deserve support. 

We all know someone who has experienced bullying in some aspect of their life. We recognise that the impact of bullying can be a very difficult process to overcome. The scars can last for many years and can lead onto mental and emotional health issues. 

We are asking schools, workplaces and local communities to get involved and wear blue. This will help boost the wellbeing of those who have experienced bullying to minimise isolation and lift self-esteem. Help us, show support and get involved in #WearBlue4Wellbeing and choose your own day and time to raise awareness.

We want to see you in blue for #WearBlue4Wellbeing

Please send us your great pics of wear blue day to us on Twitter or Facebook so we can celebrate and share your great pictures. If you would like to show your support on social media please use the hashtag #WearBlue4Wellbeing. You can also email us at wearblue@familylives.org.uk for more information.
