William + Catherine + Harry

The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge & Prince Harry talk about their goal to shine a spotlight on the power of conversation and discuss bereavement, modern childhood, and dealing with trauma in the workplace. Prince Harry said, "when you speak peoples families and to kids you think ‘wow’ I don’t want them to have to go through the same things; with a little bit of experience you want to help as much as you can"

Lady Gaga + Prince William

In their FaceTime call, The Duke and Lady Gaga discussed how opening up and having conversations about mental health is vital to ending the stigma that still surrounds these issues. Lady Gaga said she felt people with mental health challenges were 'not hiding anymore' and the The Duke added that it is time 'to feel normal about mental health – it's the same as physical health' and that good conversations can 'really make such a difference.'

Wow - what a sprint to the finish line that was!

Marathon week was amazing – we hope you were as excited too be part of it as we were!

Heads Together Runner Stories

Heads Together was the Charity of the Year for the 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon. We are thrilled that we got the country talking about mental health with our runners leading the way. These are their stories.

Each person had a different reason to run the marathon and here you can discover what inspired them to run for mental health.

If you are fortunate enough to get a ballot place for the 2018 London Marathon and would like to support Heads Together and mental health, please get in touch with us in October for more information on how you can get involved. You can enter the London Marathon ballot until 5th May.

JOIN HEADS TOGETHER

Help us build on the great work being done across the country so that prejudice and fear no longer stand in the way of people getting the help they need. Let’s get our Heads Together to eliminate stigma and change the conversation on mental health.

ABOUT HEADS TOGETHER

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

Too often, people feel afraid to admit that they are struggling with their mental health. This fear of prejudice and judgement stops people from getting help and can destroy families and end lives. 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.

The Heads Together campaign will build on the great work being done by our partner charities so that prejudice and fear no longer stand in the way of people getting the help they need.

Being the 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon Charity of the Year is the perfect springboard for the Heads Together campaign. We cannot wait to see hundreds of runners hitting the streets of London this April to end the stigma and change the conversation on mental health once and for all.
