    In the message, Her Royal Highness says that both she and The Duke of Cambridge have seen that many children are struggling to cope with the impact of issues such as bullying, bereavement, family breakdown and more, which for some young people can lead to depression anxiety, addiction and self-harm if they don’t get appropriate support. The Duchess says that stigma around mental health means that many children do not get the help they so badly need, which needs to change.

    The Duchess of Cambridge has sent a special message to The Times, calling for a new attitude on child mental health.

    “I believe that our generation of parents, carers, teachers, and health workers now have the chance to give the mental health of our children the focus it requires,” she wrote. “I feel strongly that young people and parents need to know that they can ask for help. Just as with physical health, we need to act early to provide support when a child is faced with emotional difficulties.”

    The message comes as part of The Times’ Time to Mind campaign, which has also had support from Peter Gabriel, Paloma Faith, Neil Gaiman and more, and calls for more support for child mental health.

    Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cambridge, as Royal Patron of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH), is supporting Children’s Hospice Week and has released the following statement.

    “Around the clock support is crucial for children receiving palliative care. They and their families often need help every hour of every day, both in hospices and at home. As Patron of EACH, I have seen first-hand this remarkable and varied work and just how vital the support of staff and volunteers can be to the families of children with life limiting conditions. It has been wonderful to see the fantastic public support for Children’s Hospice Week over the last few days. Please continue supporting your local children’s hospice in whatever way you can.”

    Children’s Hospice Week (which runs from 13th – 20th June this year) is the UK’s only awareness raising and fundraising week for children with life-limiting conditions and the services, like children’s hospices, that support them.
