The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge today visited Stewards Academy to find out more about the pressures faced by young people when they are going through big changes in their lives and the support from their friends, school and parents that can help them get through these changes.
Stewards Academy is one of the schools supported by Place2Be, a member of the team of charities brought together for the Heads Together campaign spearheaded by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry to change the conversation on mental health from shame to support. Place2Be has been an integral part of the support network available to pupils at the Academy for several years.
During the visit, their Royal Highnesses attended a lesson led by students and a special assembly for Years 7 and 11 on coping with big changes in life.
Today let’s change the conversation on mental health and wellbeing with young people together. Read The Duke’s blog below, download and share our 10 tips for talking, and join in with the conversation on change today via #HeadsTogether.
