the yellow book

The Yellow Book is the creative, wellbeing resource published by rethinkyourmind.  The project usually opens for entries every 2 years and all submissions are showcased on an online gallery until the hard copy of The Yellow Book is published. In 2020, we opened for entries during lockdown to uplift and brighten the situation; The new look version of The Yellow Book will be published in December 2021.

Originally, back in 2012, The Yellow Book was created by those with experience of mental health challenges and has consistently been endorsed by professionals to create this unique, beautiful and uplifting book that hopes to support, inspire and signpost.

In addition to the national resource, rethinkyourmind also collaborate with organisations to create their own personalised Yellow Books.
