The Duchess of Cambridge shared a heartfelt message to mark Place2Be's Children's Mental Health Week 2020. She says that although there's "still much to do," she is pleased to work with the charity in order to encourage people to take care of their mental health. Get all the details right here...

Duchess Catherine has been concerned about child development and parenting for many years. Only last week, she visited the London Early Years Foundation Stockwell Gardens Nursery & Pre-school in order to promote and highlight the importance of a nutritious breakfast for a kid's development.

Now she has shared a powerful message to mark the Place2Be Children's Mental Health Week 2020.

This is Duchess Catherine's powerful message for Children's Mental Health Week 2020 

"For many children today, the world can feel a scary and daunting place. While we might not always feel brave inside, even the smallest act — such as sharing a worry or asking for help — can be incredibly courageous. Helping children to feel confident about seeking support can have a transformational impact on their lives."

She continued:

"Being able to try new things and push ourselves outside of our comfort zone are important skills that can build children’s resilience and self-esteem. Learning these skills early in life can give children tools to cope with future challenges they may face in adulthood."

Duchess Catherine added that she is pleased to support Place 2Be's Children Mental Health Week once again. She also said that although "there is still much to do," she has seen how the charity's work has been helping not only children, but also young people and adults in terms of taking care of their mental health.
