Prince William and Kate visit Heads Together charity YoungMinds

Prince William and Kate stepped out again on Thursday morning (Aug. 25) to further raise awareness for Heads Together, their mental health campaign. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge paid a low-key visit to one of its eight charity partners, the YoungMinds helpline in London.

The couple arrived in high spirits, with Kate stunning in a scarlet L.K. Bennett dress.

The purpose of their visit was to see how the helpline offers support and advice to any adult worried about the emotional problems, behaviour or mental health of a child or young person.

William and Kate, both 34, met some of the volunteers who answer those calls. They were given a taster of the training these volunteers undergo to prepare them for the calls.

It was an opportunity for Prince George and Princess Charlotte's parents to see the types of questions and responses people can expect if they call, and to dispel some of the myths surrounding the profiles of people at the end of the line.

Earlier this year William, Kate and Prince Harry launched the Heads Together campaign to end stigma around mental health. A total of eight charities are involved, one of which is YoungMinds, hoping to change the national conversation around mental health.

The issue has always struck a chord with William and Kate, who admitted that they would seek professional help for their children George and Charlotte if they ever needed it in the future.

"Throughout my work with family and child support organisations, one thing that has stood out to me time and again is that getting early support for a child who is struggling to cope is the best possible thing we can do to help our children as they grow up," Kate wrote in a statement this month. "Knowing this, both William and I feel very strongly that we wouldn't hesitate to get expert support for George and Charlotte if they need it."
