Prince William and Kate Middleton Encourage Others To Seek Help For Mental Health Issues

Royal couple William and Kate look to be following in the footsteps of the late Princess Diana who broke all Royal protocol when she showed emotion and compassion to all those in need. And by the looks of things, her son and his wife look to be keeping her spirit alive.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are continuing to promote children’s mental health by visiting with representatives from YoungMinds in London on Thursday. In a video message posted by Kensington Palace, the Royals and several members of the organisation opened up about the importance of parents seeking help when dealing with mental health issues in their children.

“We’re parents ourselves. I’m sure we’ll face worries. We do face worries because we’ve got small, young children,” Kate said. “But if those worries escalate, having that feeling that there’s somebody there that’s non-judgmental that can provide the professional support and that can really provide a helping hand at a difficult time, I think, is really impressive.”

Prince William went on to praise the highly skilled individuals who work at the hotline call centre.
“You’ve got these caring, lovely people on the phone, who listen for as long as they need to build the picture of what’s going on and provide extremely good advice,” he said.

The Royal couple wanted to emphasise how normal it was to seek help and how they was no shame in asking for assistance.  “What we’ve taken away, I suppose, is just how normal it is,” Kate said.
“It’s totally fine to talk about it, to seek help, and speak out,” William added. “Because we’re not all superheroes and there’s a lot of pressure on parents. Most of it is self-made, from parents themselves, where you feel you have to handle everything. You have to show strength and resilience to everything. But there are sometimes when it all gets to be too much and you need to reach out and that’s totally fine.”
