The Duchess of Cambridge has sent a special message to The Times, calling for a new attitude on child mental health.

“I believe that our generation of parents, carers, teachers, and health workers now have the chance to give the mental health of our children the focus it requires,” she wrote. “I feel strongly that young people and parents need to know that they can ask for help. Just as with physical health, we need to act early to provide support when a child is faced with emotional difficulties.”

The message comes as part of The Times’ Time to Mind campaign, which has also had support from Peter Gabriel, Paloma Faith, Neil Gaiman and more, and calls for more support for child mental health.
