Britain’s Prince William to raise awareness of male suicide
Britain’s Prince William is to raise awareness of male suicide.
The 33-year-old royal will reportedly join his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, and his brother, Prince Harry, as they all fight to bring mental health issues into the forefront.
The Prince – who has two-year-old Prince George and nine-month-old Princess Charlotte with Duchess Catherine – has seen firsthand how these issues can affect people through his work with the charity Centrepoint, PEOPLE magazine reports.
Meanwhile, the 34-year-old royal previously spoke up about how mental health can affect children.
She said: “Every child deserves to grow up feeling confident that they won’t fall at the first hurdle, that they cope with life’s setbacks. This resilience – our ability to deal with stressful situations – is something we begin to learn in childhood, as we respond to each challenge and problem life presents.
“Many of us are incredibly fortunate that the issues we face in childhood are ones we can cope with and learn from. But for some children, learning to cope with life’s challenges can be a struggle. While we cannot always change a child’s circumstances, we can give them the tools to cope, and to thrive. With early support they can learn to manage their emotions and feelings and know when to seek help.”
