Prince William and Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, have spoken out about the importance of challenging the “stigma which surrounds mental health” as part of the Time to Change campaign.
- Prince William and Duchess Kate appeared in a video clip shared by Time to Change, where they discussed how the campaign helped “challenge the stigma” around mental health.
- They revealed we “cannot afford to stop here” with our efforts.
- In other royal news, the Queen doesn’t want “family conflict at this stage of her reign” insider claims.
Prince William and Duchess Kate have long been prominent advocates for mental health initiatives. And in February, the royal couple also lent their support to a particularly important cause – the Time to Change campaign. This is a vital social movement supported by a team of 60 people to help end mental health stigma.
They aim to challenge the negative attitudes that too often impact the lives of those who are experiencing mental health problems. Earlier this year, the official Kensington Royal Instagram account posted a video clip that posed the all-important question – ‘Can a small conversation make a difference?’

Prince William went on to reveal how Time to Change champions have made a difference and helped the subject of mental health become more openly discussed.
“Over the past 15 years, Time to Change champions have inspired and supported thousands of people across the country, and mental health has now, at last, moved into the mainstream as part of our daily lives,” he said.
Though, as Kate acknowledged, “the work isn’t done yet and we cannot afford to stop here.”
“We need to keep talking, keep taking action and continue to stand up to the stigma,” Prince William declared.
