2016 | Heads Together

INFORMATION:

Heads Together is a mental health initiative spearheaded by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, which combines a campaign to tackle stigma and change the conversation on mental health with fundraising for a series of innovative new mental health services.

Through their work with young people, emergency response, homeless charities, and with veterans, they have seen time and time again that unresolved mental health problems lie at the heart of some of our greatest social challenges.

Heads Together wants to help people feel much more comfortable with their everyday mental wellbeing and have the practical tools to support their friends and family.
