The yellow tulip represents happiness and hope.
They remind us of newness and spring time which brings light and warmth. They remind Julia Hansen, the project's creator & director, of the two best friends she lost to suicide. The tulip was the favorite flower of one and yellow the favorite color of another.
In dark times it is important to reach out and get the help you need and to never forget how loved you are. The Yellow Tulip Project is meant to help smash the stigma around mental illness. We need to talk about mental illness - not suffer alone or feel shame.
