The Duchess of Cambridge marks The Times Time to Mind Children's Mental Health Campaign


The Duchess of Cambridge gave a quote to the Times to mark their Time to Mind Children's Mental Health Campaign.

Here is the full text of the quote is here:

"I have been heartened to see that so much progress has been made in ending the taboo of adults openly treating mental wellbeing as the health issue it is.

"I believe that our generation of parents, carers, teachers, and health workers now have the chance to give the mental health of our children the focus it requires.

"I feel strongly that young people and parents need to know that they can ask for help. Just as with physical health, we need to act early to provide support when a child is faced with emotional difficulties.

"This is a discussion that William and I hope to play a part in during the months and years to come. We welcome all work to highlight this important issue for the benefit of all our young people."
