I'm so glad Catherine is focusing on a charity that help children with mental health issues. Mental health issues is a very sore topic here in America.

Yes, folks, Catherine looks good, but lets focus on the work she's doing. It'll be sad for everyone to focus on her looks, and not pay attention to her focusing on mental health.

I agree! I love this niche she is carving out around building stable youth to prevent trouble in adulthood :) Very promising!

Yes this is a topic that many in the U.S. are reluctant to discuss but it needs to be dealt with.

So happy to see Children's Mental Health being brought to the forefront. It is an area of health care that has been sadly neglected. At least here in Canada. As a health care provider working in rural areas, I find it very challenging to find care for kids who need it. There are centres of care in the cities but that means travel for up to 2 - 3 hours one way. Not easy in Northern Ontario winters. Well done, Kate. I hope all the best for this new place for the kids

A relaxed and tanned Duchess of Cambridge has made her first solo official visit since the birth of Princess Charlotte in May.

Sporting a smart new fringe, the Duchess, 33, visited the Anna Freud Centre to learn how the charity is working to help young people with mental health issues.

Aides said that the Duchess would be returning to a limited programme of official engagements after spending a summer break with Prince George, two, and Princess Charlotte, four months, at their new family home, Anmer Hall, in Norfolk.

During the visit she wore a £1,245 Ralph Lauren shirtdress, with her new look remarked upon by several staff at the centre.

The Duchess is expected to become more involved with projects similar to the Anna Freud centre, having adopted a keen interest in mental health issues according to those briefed on the matter.

Anna Freud was the sixth child of Sigmund Freud and followed her father into the field of psychoanalysis.

The Duchess wants to play a part in the open discussion around the emotional and mental wellbeing of children.

But the dress and hair looks amazing, she's going back to her 2011 premarriage style.

I think I figured out why Kate seemed extra chummy greeting that guy today with a hug and kiss. The guy Michael Samuels is Chair of Trustees for Anna Freud Center is the husband of Julia Samuels of Child Bereavement and George's godmother.

Here's the DM article about Julia as Godmother. There is a pic with her hubby Michael. It's the same guy.

I stood out to me too. Too much friendly interaction to be a complete stranger. Then I saw his name was Michael Samuels and thought Julia Samuels. Quick google search confirmed her hubby is Michael and the pictures from Christening showed he was same guy. Then the forum was down so I made a tweet for like the fifth time

Mental health is something we really have to tackle in this Country. It's not something that comes up very often, until we have major shootings, then suddenly it's mentioned. I'm glad Catherine is bringing this very important issue to our attention and helping us realize that reaching out to those who have these issues have to be the priority.

Princess Kate high-fived youngsters, wore 3-D goggles, played a motion game in heels and called to mind another princess who had a special way with children during a visit on Thursday to a school for kids with mental health issues.

Back from maternity leave after having 4-month-old Princess Charlotte in May, it was her first public outing of a busy autumn – and she was highlighting one of her key issues.

But she was also at the Family School run by the Anna Freud Centre in London to have some fun.

Diving into FitLights, part of a Smart Gym "brain-training system" with 12-year-old Kai, who copes with ADHD and an emotional disorder, she tested her reactions and impressed his watching mother, Chantel. (The center preferred that last names remain private.)

"She visited the Anna Freud Centre and its associated Family School in Islington, North London, on the latest part of her mission to champion the need for early intervention to deal with a national epidemic of mental health issues facing one in 10 children.

The school, which offers therapy and academic lessons to children with severe emotional and behavioural problems in joint sessions with their parents, will form part of a £25 million integrated centre of excellence housing mental health experts and researchers due to open in Islington in 2018.

Mental health experts hope the integrated approach with joint lessons for children and their parents will be replicated around Britain, as the Government prepares to invest £1.25 billion over five years to tackle the problems affecting around one million young people, often as a result of family breakdown, abuse, illness, and bereavement."

Wow, I wish our government was prepared to invest and tackle mental health issues too. For some odd reason, it's incredibly hard for us to really double down on issues like this, when clearly a great deal of people in our communities are suffering from a major lack of help in this area.

I did my psychiatry rotation a few months back and child psych really broke my heart. There is a general lack of understanding about child mental health and as a result the child suffers.
1. It will take a longer time with very severe symptoms before parents bring they children to be seen compared to adults. Most parents are in denial because of the stigma and the misconceptions with regards to child mental health.

2. Child mental health affects a DEVELOPING BRAIN, if not managed properly as early as possible, the overall brain development will be affected and they might end up with some serious neurological fallouts.

3. If not managed properly, the child will do badly. For example, if managed properly, ADHD children have a very good prognosis and can go on to do whatever they wish. If managed badly, their self esteem and school work suffer, they start "acting out" because they are frustrated, may engage in more criminal activity (because criminals are skilled in making kids with low self esteem feel good about themselves) or drop out of school because they cannot cope. They might even be end up with Conduct Disorder. A lot of these kids are smart, just cannot concentrate. Manage ADHD and see the change

4.The need for these special schools is HUGE!!! When placed in the right school, children who were struggling start shining, their confidence and self esteem (which have taken a huge knock at this point) improve and the child does so much better overall.

5. Providing the parents and family with support and education goes a long way in helping the child do better. If the home environment is supportive and caregivers know how to deal with some of the challenges along the way, then the Child does soo much better. You dont just treat the child, you treat the whole family.

I could go on about this but the most important thing is to start managing child mental health issues as early as possible and to do that, we need to first deal with the biggest barrier, which is the stigma around it.

Hope HRH continues on this path. Been loving all her child mental health engagements.

Thank you HighnessN! Speaking as an educator I agree that there is a great need for centers. Too often the typical classroom setting is not the right placement for a child experiencing mental illness concerns. And yes placement in a specialized center will come after months/years of escalating problems in the regular and special education classrooms.

That is sobering, deeply troubling information. Suicide among children and teens seems to be on the rise here in the U.S.

Thank you very much Highness N, for shedding some light.

It seems that often times we find these children have been on various medications before they commit suicide. Of course some of the warnings on the meds actually indicate depression etc can be a side effect.

Yes, but that's why children (and adults, too, for that matter) need intervention to include therapy or other forms of personal treatment, and not just a medication. In the US, we too often think that a pill will solve the problem.

Hate to tell you but way too often in England a pill is also seen as the answer to the problem. Which photograph do you think The Fail published today of the DOC? The side one which exposed the area just above the knee, predicable and sad.
