Kate Middleton meets with mental health charity volunteers on World Mental Health Day

Today Kate and her husband, Prince William, visited Harrow College, where they met young people who are battling this issue.

Kensington Palace tweeted some photos of the royals, who “participated in a Mindkit workshop,” where they encountered “young people talking about their mental health.”

Today, October 10, marks World Mental Health Day which aims to draw attention to mental health issues around the world.

The Palace also posted a picure of Kate Middleton meeting and talking with a group of Mind charity volunteers at a reception that marked World Mental Health Day.

Duchess Kate, 33, has spoken in support of young people struggling with this issue in a video launched earlier this year, saying that, “A child’s mental health is just as important as their physical health and deserves the same quality of support.”

Kate is deeply involved in this cause as she is also a patron of children’s mental health charity Place2Be, which counsels children in schools.

Kate, William and Harry are extremely dedicated to helping people struggling with this issue, according to a royal source who talked with People magazine about their involvement in August.

“Mental well-being is an area which both the Duke and Duchess and Prince Harry are interested in. It is an area which the Duke is starting to explore as to whether he can help in any way in that sector, while recognizing that there are an awful lot of people doing a lot of great work around it already. So it is quite exploratory at the moment,” the insider said.
