The Royal trio is set to have their first trademarked hashtag as the Royal Foundation has applied for #stopspeaksupport.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, who are active campaigners of raising awareness surrounding mental health, appear to be on their next mission. The three started their Heads Together Foundation which recently received the results of their work with the findings that between February to May, when the Heads Together Campaign was in full force, the public’s understanding of mental health as exponentially higher.
The trademark request which was filled on 4 October by Bates Wells & Braithwaite London LLP on behalf of the Royal Foundation calls for trademarked use under “Printed matter; banners and posters; instructional and teaching materials.
“Campaigning; promotional and public awareness campaigns; all the aforesaid consisting of or relating to charitable activities in the field of mental health.
“Charitable fundraising; financial grant-making; management and monitoring of charitable funds.
“Education and training; sporting and cultural activities; organizing of events; organizing of fundraising events; publishing, electronic publishing; provision of non-downloadable electronic publications; advisory, consultancy and information services in relation to all the aforesaid.”
As well as, “Healthcare services in relation to mental health; advisory, consultancy and information services in relation to healthcare and to mental health.”
The trademark request was published on the Intellectual Property Office’s website on 20 October.
The Royal Foundation has yet to announce what the campaign linked to hashtag will be, but #stopspeaksupport sounds like the steps to reaching help for those suffering.
On 8 October, the Duke of Cambridge announced a new £2 million grant for “start-up for digital mental health innovation”, so those who need help will have the ability to find it and other related information, as reported by The Express.
Prince William hopes it will be able to help those suffering by bringing “them into the fold and give them the help they need”.
