On November 12, 2019 The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended Shout’s Crisis Volunteer Celebration Event at the Troubadour White City Theater.
Shout is a text service developed by The Royal Foundation as a legacy of the Heads Together Campaign that was launched by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex in May of 2019.
In the announcement released in May, Kensington Palace said: “…Shout, [is a] a text messaging service available 24/7 to those struggling with mental health in the U.K. The program pairs users with trained volunteers to help those in need “move from a moment of crisis to a calm state and form a plan for next steps to find longer-term support…”
Volunteers have so far had 145,000 conversations and exchanged six million messages with those in crisis.
During the event The Duke and Duchess met volunteers, mental health campaigners, staff members, and supporters to learn about the service that supports people in crisis.
