Catherine joins ‘You’re never too young to talk’ campaign for children’s mental health

The Duchess of Cambridge has released a video in support of a new children’s mental health campaign: You’re never too young to talk’.

Catherine, who is already an advocate for mental health in both adults and children, filmed the video during her last visit to the Anna Freud Centre in January. The charity has begun the campaign.

The video is introduced by the Duchess, before an animation goes on to explain how to ask for help or help someone with their mental health, in a child-friendly way.

Giving parents and teachers free resources to support children learning about their mental health is the aim of the Anna Freud Centre’s campaign, backed by Kate.


“As parents, we all want our children to have the best possible start in life. Encouraging children to understand and be open about their feelings can give them the skills to cope with the ups and downs that life will throw at them as they grow up,” she said.

“It’s important that our children understand that emotions are normal and that they have the confidence to ask for help if they are struggling.”

“Sometimes, it’s just the simple conversation that can make things better,” the Duchess explains.
