Kate and William speak out for Heads Together

You can tell just how seriously William and Kate are taking their Heads Together campaign as they have spoken publicly about the importance of parents getting the support they need and not trying to be superheroes. As they visited YoungMinds to find out about their work, they both talked openly about the stresses of being parents and how much it means to know that help is available.

William and Kate spoke out at the end of their visit to the organisation in London with the Duke of Cambridge saying that 'there are times when it all gets too much and you need to reach out and that's totally fine' while the duchess added 'we are parents ourselves, I am sure we will face worries. If those worries escalate, how vital it is to get support',

They were speaking out to encourage parents who are experiencing difficulties or who are concerned about the mental health of their children to get support. During their time at YoungMinds they took part in a training session for Helpline volunteers to find out about the range of support that the organisation offers.

They both also sat with volunteers as they took calls to hear some of the issues brought to YoungMinds and hear how the specially trained advisers help with them.

Both William and Kate wanted to underline that, as parents, they understood how mums and dads face pressures and highlight that they would always look for help if they needed it with their own children. Another indication of how important Heads Together is to two of its royal backers.
