That was a really good speech. Kate seems to be finding her voice and I thought her words were really heartfelt. My only complaint was that her hair was a bit distracting. A hair clip or something would have helped so much. Having said that, I really think she's improved quite a bit from her first speeches and look forward to her future ones.

The content of the speech was excellent IMO. I liked the way she drew on her childhood, linked mental health issues with other problems such as addiction and drew on the title of the conference. Well balanced and well delivered.

She has gained in confidence and that can be heard in her voice and the flow of the speech.

These are nerve-wracking events, even for experienced speakers. Good progress and hopefully we will hear more from her.

I agree fully with this. The speech itself was good, her speaking was improved and more confident. If only not for that little strand of hair that had made it it's mission to poke her eyes! Hopefully she fixes that in the future. But I think she even handled that well today, not showing any nervous giggles or something and just stroke it away.

Kate makes pledge to help children with mental health issues in biggest speech as a royal-
Kate Middleton pledges to help children with mental health issues | Royal | News | Daily Express

"Aides said her address was "very much her own" and one of several speeches she is expected to make in the coming months. They also insisted it should not be seen as a comment on claims she was bullied at prep school.

A nervous speaker in her first few attempts since she joined the Royal Family in April 2011, Kate has shown a new confidence in public speaking in her last two engagements."

I pay attention to the content of the speech and the emotion with which it is delivered and Catherine didn't disappoint with either. She spoke from the heart and drew on her own childhood experience. She smears sad someone who is more than willing to fight for the children who are most vulnerable and are at risk for developing serious issues later in life if their childhood struggles with mental illness are not dealt with. As someone who grew up with depression, I know first hand what it's like to have my feelings dismissed just because I was a child. According to my relatives children weren't supposed to have problems and whatever problems they thought they had weren't important. It would have been such a blessing to have someone like Catherine speaking up for me. I'm so happy to know that other children with similar pain will not be ignore or pushed aside just because they're children and Catherine is making sure that such things don't occur by raising awareness. Good for her.

I decided to put this here as the artilce specifically mentions Catherine's work as patron of Place2Be as well as her visits with the Anna Freud Centre and MIND

Quote:
The Duchess of Cambridge has topped a list of “health heroes” for her championing of children’s mental health.

Kate was praised for speaking out on a subject that for decades has suffered taboo status and continues to be under-resourced by the NHS.

Others commended by the MyHealthLondon website included the rapper Professor Green, who revealed the truth about his father’s suicide to highlight the number of young men taking their own lives, and doctor Michael Jacobs, who led the Royal Free Hospital team that saved three UK nurses from Ebola.

The Place2Be video shows a much more confident Duchess than the past ones. It was a great idea to have the kids interacting with Kate. Parents, teachers and kids can relate and take some of the message to heart.

She sounds great- some of the most confident speaking I've seen her do. Great seeing her interact with the kids.

The Duchess of Cambridge has called for more children to have better mental health support in schools to stop problems developing later in life.

Kate, as patron of the mental health charity Place2be, has recorded a video message to mark the start of Children's Mental Health Week.

The video, which was filmed in Salisbury Primary School, Queen's Park, northwest London, shows the Duchess talking to four children who have benefited from support from Place2Be.

i also liked the place to be video, she sounds stronger than before as you've all pointed out and she is relaxed. i can remember one of her first videos during the africa horn crisis when they visited denmark, and she sounded almost fake from the nervousness. she clearly has come a long way. and the cause is such a powerful one, i love how she engages with the children when asking questions.

i also like her diction a lot. i wonder if she ever spoke such a clear 'queen's' english, or if she became trained as a result of becoming royal. (she obviously always had a good base in the past, as pippa also speaks very clearly.)

I think she was trained, nobody speaks like this apart from QEII. Its a good cause but I still find Kate speaking very boring and stiff.

It may have only been 3 and a half minutes long but the video that Princess Kate made at a school to highlight what can be done for children's mental health has had an astonishing impact.

It has had nearly half a million views on social networking sites, in 180 countries, and been broadcast on news programs around the world, making up a potential audience of millions.

"This is unprecedented coverage for our work," says Benita Refson, President of Place2Be, the organization behind the video.

Place2Be is a key charity backed by Kate, 34, in her ongoing commitment to tackling mental health issues. Refson tells PEOPLE the royal mom is "extremely well-informed" about the issues.

Those at Place2Be were thrilled they were able to make the film in a school so the children could ask her questions.

"It gave children the opportunity to talk about their attitudes towards emotional wellbeing and the chance to ask the Duchess about her own thoughts on Place2Be," Refson says. "We are keen to ensure that the children's own voices are listened to and this was a unique platform for them to speak out and be heard worldwide."

Clearly, the children clearly enjoyed the experience: "I was really excited to meet the Duchess, my Nan was really excited for me too," says Bailey-Rae, 7, says.

While Nimra, 10, tells PEOPLE: "I had the biggest smile on my face when she walked in and then I just kept on smiling. I couldn’t stop."
