Prince William, Princess Kate and Prince Harry launched their new mental health campaign, The Heads Together Campaign earlier this month. The campaign will be the biggest joint initiative by the royals in 2017, bringing together eight charities, to help change perceptions about mental health.
Despite the progress made in the area of mental health, it still remains an issue driven by negative associations and language. People are afraid to seek help for mental health issues because of the prejudice and too often their stories end in tragedy. Through The Heads Together Campaign, they hope to end the stigma attached to mental health.
An important part of the campaign is the marathon that will be taking place next year – the 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon Charity. Through the marathon they hope to:
- “To kickstart a big conversation in their communities – with friends, family, and co-workers – about ending the stigma that still surrounds mental health.
- To raise money for the inspiring charities that provide practical support to those who need it.”
The Heads Together campaign takes place in the UK, it would’ve been great if the royals would run a sister campaign here in the US. For more info on the Heads Together Campaign, please click here.
