William, Kate & Harry help celebrate World Mental Health Day at the London Eye

On Monday 10th October 2016, William, Kate and Harry marked World Mental Health Day by attending a reception organised by the Heads Together campaign.  The event took place at County Hall in London.

As you may recall, Heads Together is a project spearheaded by William, Kate and Harry as part of The Royal Foundation (a charity described as the “main vehicle” for the royal trio’s philanthropic activities).  Heads Together is a collective of experienced and inspiring charities that provide frontline mental health support, raise awareness and tackle stigma. You can learn more here.

This year’s theme for World Mental Health Day was ‘psychological first aid and the support people can provide to those in distress’.  During the reception, William, Kate and Harry met with a range of people who’ve helped each other through tough times.

During the event in County Hall, all three royals listened to people share ‘support stories’.  They also delivered individual speeches (which you can read in full here).

“The three of us have learnt a lot in the past few months as we have met people. The conclusion we are coming to is that the more we all talk about this, the more collectively as a society we can do to support one another.”  Prince William

Here’s a photo of Kate speaking with Mind Blue Light champion, firefighter Richard McGhee.

After the reception, William, Kate and Harry visited the London Eye (a giant ferris wheel in the city that is a tourist attraction) with guests who’ve suffered with psychological problems in the past and those who’ve provided support.

The Eye is one of several attractions around the world taking part in the Light Up Purple campaign, another initiative designed to show solidarity in removing the stigma surrounding mental health.
