Duchess Kate shares video with parents

The Duchess of Cambridge has shared a video telling parents to ‘look after’ themselves during this ‘hugely challenging time’.

Speaking for Children’s Mental Health Week, Kate also said mothers and fathers need to be ‘the very best versions of ourselves for the children in our care’.

She also told young people struggling in lockdown to express themselves through things like photography, music or poetry.

She has supported the annual initiative since it was launched in 2015 – to highlight the importance of children and young people’s mental health – by Place2Be, a children’s mental health charity of which she is royal patron.

In her message, Kate said: ‘This year’s Children’s Mental Health Week is all about expressing yourself – about finding creative ways in which to share your thoughts, ideas and feelings.

‘So whether that’s through photography, through art, through drama, through music or poetry – it’s finding those things that make you feel good about yourself.

‘And while this is Children’s Mental Health Week there has never been a more important time to talk about parental wellbeing and mental health too.

Last year you told me just how important this was, that many of us find it hard to prioritise. This is a hugely challenging time for us all so please look after yourself too.

‘Find those ways in which to share your thoughts and your feelings or find someone to talk to because we really do need to be the very best versions of ourselves for the children in our care.’
