Prince William today called for adults to encourage children to “talk and get support” if they are feeling down as he spoke about his and Kate’s own hopes for their son and daughter.

The Duke of Cambridge said he and the Duchess want George, three, and his one-year-old sister Charlotte not only to achieve their academic potential but feel emotionally supported too.

In a blog published today before a visit to a secondary school in Essex, at the start of the new term, William said: “For many young people, changing schools or starting a new academic year is really difficult to deal with.

“Catherine and I have young children who will be going through this themselves in a short period of time, and like all parents we will want to make sure that our children are not just able to achieve their academic potential at school but are also happy and emotionally supported.”

I think the Cambridges (and Prince Harry) are doing great work with the Heads Together campaign. It's good that they are attempting to spread awareness of the stigma when it comes to sharing mental health problems/low feelings, as (from personal experience) I know that not everyone here in England seem to share William and Catherine's views when it comes to talking to someone trustworthy about any problems one may have/some feelings one is concerned about - especially in school.

It was also nice to see the photos of William and Catherine with the pupils; and to read their experiences at talking with them. I think they are rather caring and considerate people, and Catherine, to me, has always been good with children and young people. From all the photos I've seen of her with them, I get the impression that it's not difficult for her to get them talking in a way where they feel relaxed and less pressurised.
And I hope that the Vice Lord Lieutenant didn't have any painful or nasty injuries from his fall.

Some great quotes from the Heads Together event, plus praise for Catherine for being a very knowledgable Royal Patron of Place2Be


Dr. Fiona Pienaar, director of clinical services at Place2Be, praised Kate for being so "knowledgeable" about mental health and helping bring conversations about the issue into the mainstream.

"Catherine has been an absolutely fantastic patron, and since the Heads Together campaign has come together, that has really raised the profile even more for mental health," she tells PEOPLE.

"Having met Catherine on a couple of occasions, she's so knowledgeable about mental health and they are really passionate. I have been in situations where she's in a small group asking questions, and it's clear that she understands the impact of mental health and early intervention.

"The other thing she does really well, and I think they both do, is how they talk to young people. They share their experiences, and I think that shows how they really connect with young people. I imagine having their own children has also brought issues to the fore for them."

Kate Middleton and Prince William talk about the pressures young people face

Rudolph 09-29-2016 06:03 AM


A BOURNEMOUTH teenager has welcomed royal approval for a pioneering mental health project which supported her through a tough period in her life.

Suzie Duffy, 18, who lives in Southbourne, was one of a handful of volunteers who met Prince William and Kate Middleton earlier this month.

The royal couple were in Cornwall to look at the work of the Wave Project, which uses surfing to reduce anxiety and improve wellbeing in children.

They met children from the surf therapy charity and their mentors, watched them take part in surfing and lifesaving activities and met volunteers, staff and supporters.

One of the surf-mentors to meet the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge was Suzie, who won the Young Volunteer Award at last year's UK Surf Awards for her work with the charity.

She joined the Wave Project as a client in Bournemouth before becoming a volunteer.

“I was in a mental health hospital for eight months suffering from depression and anxiety and OCD," said Suzie.
