The annual Heads Together Christmas party was hosted on Monday 19 December by youth support service The Mix, to celebrate the volunteers and counsellors who support people through tough times in their lives.

First, The Duke and Prince Harry joined a group session where counsellors and volunteers shared knowledge and had training on dealing with a range of issues, with a focus on supporting people who are suicidal and helping young people coping with homelessness.

The Duchess then joined a live online chat about counselling with volunteers and young people from around the UK.

Their Royal Highnesses were then given the chance to speak to volunteers and service users from The Mix, to hear about their personal experience of online and telephone counselling support.

The Mix gives young people aged 13-25 a helping hand to find their way through any challenge, from homelessness to finding a job, from money to mental health, from break-ups to drugs.

Their Royal Highnesses then all joined a celebration Christmas Party reception where they decorated baubles, made paper-chains and helped out with the gingerbread decorating.

They also chatted to the exceptional volunteers who support people through tough times in their lives.

At the end of their visit they kicked off The Mix Annual Awards by presenting the Volunteer of the Year Award to George Yeorghaki.

Heads Together brings together The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess, and Prince Harry in partnership with other charities to tackle stigma, raise awareness and provide vital help for people with mental health challenges.
