Dan previously took part in Young Mind’s #helloyellow campaign on World Mental Health Day to raise money for the charity.
this is the least comfortable or true to myself i've ever felt taking a photo but it's for a good cause. today is #worldmentalhealthday and with @youngmindsuk i'm saying #helloyellow to show people aren't alone with their mental health. if you live in the u.k. and want to raise money text 'YMHY17 £3' to 70070 – i hope to search the # and see you there too!
Young Minds aims to improve the emotional health and well being of young people and children in the UK. Dan is joining a team of ambassadors from X Factor’s Lucy Spraggan to Channel 4’s Cathy Newman.
