The Duchess of Cambridge, Patron of Place2Be’s, recently attended the charity’s annual Headteacher Conference in London.
The event aims at helping Headteachers from around the UK discuss the key issues and latest thinking on the role that schools can play in tackling mental health problems early in life.
The Duchess of Cambridge is guest editing The Huffington Post UK today to highlight the importance of children’s mental health.
The Duchess will help launch Young Minds Matter, an initiative that discusses the problems, causes and most importantly the solutions to the stigma surrounding the UK’s mental health problem amongst children.
In a blog published on HuffPost today The Duchess explains why she is getting behind Young Minds Matter:
The Duchess of Cambridge has become Patron of the Anna Freud Centre.
The Anna Freud Centre is a children’s mental health charity, which is working to reduce the burden of mental health difficulties of children and young people. It provides a range of clinical services, specialist teaching and training for practitioners and pursues a programme of cutting edge research.
Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge has praised SportsAid's contribution to British sport and the difference its supporters have made to ‘thousands of young people and their families’ in a special message to mark the charity’s 40th birthday today.
The Duchess became the Patron of SportsAid, the charity providing financial support and recognition to the next generation of British Olympians and Paralympians, in 2013.
She has spent time with young athletes supported by SportsAid, and previous beneficiaries of the charity’s help, at fundraising events, training days and performance workshops.
Earlier this week, the International Fund For Animal Welfare (IFAW) and the Wildlife Trust of India welcomed the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to the Center for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Conservation (CWRC), where they witnessed first-hand orphaned Asian elephants and rhinos and other injured wildlife and met the dedicated staff that rescue and care for these animals.
“We are delighted that their Royal Highnesses made time in their busy tour schedule to visit the IFAW- WTI center and meet staff and the animals under care,” said Azzedine Downes, IFAW President and CEO. “With elephants and rhinos in particular facing an uncertain future due to habitat loss, human conflict and poaching, IFAW is pleased that the Duke and Duchess are able to raise public awareness of these threats to an international audience.”
The Queen has hosted a reception at Buckingham Palace to showcase forestry projects dedicated to The Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy (QCC) conservation initiative.
The reception was attended by Sir David Attenborough who gave a speech thanking Her Majesty for “showing great leadership” by putting her name to the project.
The annual Heads Together Christmas party was hosted on Monday 19 December by youth support service The Mix, to celebrate the volunteers and counsellors who support people through tough times in their lives.
The Duchess of Cambridge attended a special Cub Scout Pack meeting last week with Cubs from the Kings Lynn District to celebrate 100 years of Cubs.
Her Royal Highness joined the Pack as they took part in games and activities themed around looking after yourself and others physically and emotionally.
The Duke of Cambridge has been Royal Patron of Child Bereavement UK since 2009, a charity which supports families and educates professionals when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, or when a child is facing bereavement.
The Duchess of Cambridge, Patron of the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, visited the Centre’s Early Years Parenting Unit (EYPU) last week to learn more about their work with families who have children under five years old.
The visit marks The Duchess’ continued desire to draw attention to child mental health issues and the importance early intervention, and working with the whole family, can make to those in vulnerable situations.
Her Royal Highness, Royal Patron of EACH, helped to launch The Nook Appeal in 2014, and was updated on the progress of the £10m appeal by staff, supporters, and families who she met at the hospice.
The annual awareness day is run by charity Time to Change and is aimed at getting the nation talking about mental health.
The ‘Party at The Palace’ will take place on 13th May and will be a fun and family focused event featuring live performances, various stalls, games on the lawn and the chance to explore the gardens.
Invites will be issued this week to the children aged up to 18 years of those who have died in service for their country, with each young person accompanied by a parent or guardian.
The Duchess of Cambridge visited two Action for Children projects supporting vulnerable families in Wales this week, her first engagements with the charity since becoming its Patron in December 2016, following on from Her Majesty The Queen.
The Duchess first visited Torfaen to see MIST, a child and adolescent mental health project which works specifically with children who are living in care with foster families or birth families.
The films feature people from all walks of life talking, often with the person that they first opened up to, about the life changing conversation that helped them cope with their mental health problems – from anxiety, alcoholism and depression through to loneliness, trauma and bereavement.
The day started with Their Royal Highnesses, who are Patrons of Heads Together, attending a pre-race reception to meet some of the 700 #TeamHeadsTogether runners and to wish them good luck for the 26.2 miles ahead.
A special party is to be held in the grounds of Buckingham Palace for the children of those who have died serving in the Armed Forces.
Their Royal Highnesses have arranged the event to acknowledge and honour the fact that young children have had to come to terms with the loss of someone very close to them at a young age.
Around 850 children were invited to The Palace to take part in a range of activities from face painting, breakdancing to and science experiments to cupcake decorating.

Prince William spoke to GQ for the magazine’s July issue. As a teaser, GQ says that “in a wide-ranging conversation the Duke reveals his determination to get the nation talking more about emotions and feelings.”
Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry have all three attached themselves to the Heads Together campaign, which aims to “change the national conversation on mental health and wellbeing” in a concerted effort to tackle stigma, to raise awareness and to provide help to those with mental health challenges.
“I cannot understand how families, even behind closed doors, still find it so hard to talk about [mental health],” says Prince William to GQ. “I am shocked we are so worried about saying anything about the true feelings we have. Because mental illness is inside our heads, invisible, it means others tread so carefully, and people don’t know what to say, whereas if you have a broken leg in plaster, everyone knows what to say.”
