The Duchess of Cambridge to launch Mental Health Programme for schools

HRH Duchess of Cambridge’s dedication to the well being of young people cannot go unrecognised. Through her involvement in the Heads Together campaign, social difficulties are being challenged in an effort to shed light on mental health issues and make people’s lives inherently better.

To mark the latest achievement in the Heads Together initiative, HRH Duchess of Cambridge is now to appear at the Roe Green Junior School located in London during this upcoming week. During her visit on 23 January, the Duchess will be introduced to both students and teachers there.

Upon aiding in a mental health lesson, she will also have the opportunity to deliver a speech to campaigners and guests, coinciding with the overall unveiling of the project which is intended to implement great mental health programmes within schools.

The project, funded by the Royal Foundation, will seek to aid children while still in school in order to address the issues of mental health before adulthood. It has been proven that most adult mental health problems can usually be traced back to a childhood incident. Through endeavours strategically placed during a child’s most formative years, these programmes hope to lessen the chances of mental health issues as a child grows up.

Also in attendance of the formal event will be Minister of Schools, Nick Gibb; Director of Educational Services at Together for Children Sunderland, Simon Marshall; and Head Teacher at Cherbourg Primary School, Julie Greer. Also, the students of Roe Green are expected to give a performance.

In addition to the Heads Together campaign, the initiative has been supported by these partners: Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, Place2Be, Young Minds, and the NAHT school leaders’ association.

With her heart for the younger generation leading the forward efforts of Heads Together, HRH Duchess of Cambridge along with the Royal Family hopes to be able to provide the help necessary for those young people who need it the most as they need it in the future moving forward with the initiative.
