The Duchess of Cambridge is incredibly passionate about beating the stigma surrounding mental health. Kate has often spoken out about mental health and what we can do to help normalise conversations about it.


We decided to look back on one of the most touching moments Kate discussed mental health in honour of World Mental Health Day.


The Duchess delivered a moving speech at the Anna Freud National Centre in 2016 and there’s no doubt her words will touch you.



“One in three adults still say they would be embarrassed to seek help for their child's mental health,” she revealed.

"No parent would fail to call the doctor if their child developed a fever, yet some children are tackling tough times without the support that can help them because the adults in their life are scared to ask. It doesn’t need to be like this."


Kate explained that working with family and child support organisations has helped her understand the importance of seeking help for mental health issues.

“One thing that has stood out to me time and again is that getting early support for a child who is struggling to cope is the best possible thing we can do to help our children as they grow up,” the mum stressed.


Both Kate and William are extremely passionate about supporting mental health services and have tirelessly fought against the stigma surrounding it.


The mum said they have both vowed to take their three children’s mental health as serious as their physical health.


"Knowing this, both William and I feel very strongly that we wouldn’t hesitate to get expert support for George and Charlotte if they need it."

We couldn’t agree with Kate more. Mental health is just as important and should always be taken seriously.
