The Duchess of Cambridge recently visited a primary school in Brent in an effort to help raise awareness of children's mental health.
She spoke to the primary school kids about the importance of being able to express their feelings openly.
In the message, Her Royal Highness says that both she and The Duke of Cambridge feel that “every child deserves to be supported through difficult times in their lives.”
“Every child deserves to grow up feeling confident that they won't fall at the first hurdle, that they cope with life's setbacks.
“This resilience, our ability to deal with stressful situations, is something we begin to learn in childhood, as we respond to each challenge and problem life presents.
“Many of us are incredibly fortunate that the issues we face in childhood are ones we can cope with and learn from. But for some children, learning to cope with life's challenges can be a struggle.
“While we cannot always change a child's circumstances, we can give them the tools to cope, and to thrive.”
In the video The Duchess of Cambridge speaks with 10-year-olds Nimra and Ryan along with 7-year-old Bailey-Rae and 11-year-old Connor who have all benefited from the charity.
Kate Middleton continued: “Through my work in areas like addiction, I have seen time and again that the roots of poor mental health in adulthood frequently stem from unresolved childhood issues. This needs to change.”
