August 25 – Visiting YoungMinds Mental Health Charity Helpline

Today, (August 25, 2016) The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge went on a previously unannounced visit to the YoungMinds Mental Health Charity Helpline as part of their Heads Together Campaign. Youngminds is a charity that offers online and telephone support to parents and young adults who are struggling with everything from stress over exams to more serious issues of suicide. Their goal was to see what happens when individuals reach out for support. On their visit Their Royal Highnesses toured the facility, met with volunteers who work the helplines, received some of the essential training that is given to the volunteers and sat in on call sessions.

After the visit The Duchess told chief executive Sarah Brennan: “William and I found it absolutely fascinating, from hearing the case study and also taking the calls.” She said the types of calls were so varied – “what their worries are, their concerns.” She added: “What we’ve taken away is just how normal it is. We are parents ourselves, I am sure we will face worries – we do face worries, because we’ve got small young children. If those worries escalate, how vital it is to get support – and you are providing that support.” She added, “As a parent and as a mother, having that feeling that there is somebody there that is non-judgemental, that can provide the professional support, and that can really provide helping hand at a really difficult time”‘ – (Daily Mail)
