Kate Middleton, Prince William and Prince Harry join forces for mental health campaign


The royal trio met in London to attend the preparatory meeting of the London Marathon.

Every year, the gains from the competition are donated to a good cause and this year Heads Together, a foundation launched last March by members of the royal family, will be able to benefit from this financial support.

On this occasion, the royals presented their initiative to leaders of the British society, media or technology companies, to rally them to their project.

Duchess Kate explained in her speech that she, William and Harry, could give countless examples where simple conversations would have changed lives.

“The challenge that so many people have is not knowing how to take that first step of reaching out to another person for help,” she said in a brief speech at a briefing at London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts on Tuesday. “Admitting that they are not coping. Fear, or reticence, or a sense of not wanting to burden another, means that people suffer in silence – allowing the problem to grow larger and larger unchecked.

Their Heads Together foundation redistributes its gains to eight charities working with people with mental disorders.
