In continuing with her foundations’ work of child wellbeing, growth and development, the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, has written a heartfelt message to show her support by launching the Children’s Mental Health Week.
This she does through her work with the British children’s charity Place2Be. For her, it is necessary that the mental health of young people is discussed and taken quite seriously.
In the letter, she wrote, “For many children today, the world can feel a scary and daunting place. While we might not always feel brave inside, even the smallest act—such as sharing a worry or asking for help—can be incredibly courageous. Helping children to feel confident about seeking support can have a transformational impact on their lives.”
She also goes on to write”Being able to try new things and push ourselves outside of our comfort zone are important skills that can build children’s resilience and self-esteem. Learning these skills early in life can give children tools to cope with future challenges they may face in adulthood.”
The Duchess has been the Patron of Place2Be since 2013 and remains committed to promoting mental health among children.
