And now, Duchess Kate and her husband Prince William will pay a visit to London’s Harrow College, on October 10, in order to participate at a event organized by mental health charity Mind, in collaboration with World Mental Health Day.
The royal parents are going to meet youngsters who have struggled with mental health problems, and now in their turn help other young people, as volunteers, to overcome these problems.
Earlier this year, in support of Children’s Mental Health Week, Kate spoke about how she and William saw children struggling with issues such as bereavement, bullying and family breakdown among others.
“We need to help young people and their parents understand that it’s not a sign of weakness to ask for help,” Kate said in a video recorded on that occasion. “A child’s mental health is just as important as their physical health and deserves the same quality of support.”
The royal mother is also patron of children’s mental health charity Place2Be, which offers counseling to children in schools.
