The duke volunteered with To yell
, the first crisis line in the United Kingdom 24/7 launched in May 2019. The organization was launched by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex after an investment of £ 3 million from the Royal Foundation, a statement from Kensington Place of Reading.
“I’ll share a little secret with you, I’m actually volunteering on the platform,” Prince William told Shout team members during a video call held last month.
Princess Kate has volunteered to help with “login and chat” for those who isolate themselves or are vulnerable, Kensington Palace reported.
The calls are part of the Royal Voluntary Service’s voluntary response program set up to support the National Health Service and those sensitive to Covid-19, the announcement said.
Prince William has been very vocal about mental health in the past. It’s January narrated a one-minute video that encouraged millions of football fans
to think about their mental health. Last year, he spoke openly about the loss of his mother, Princess Diana, for a BBC documentary on mental health and how men should feel comfortable discussing the subject.
In 2018, the Duke launched a website Mental health at work
, which provides resources and toolkits to improve mental health in the workplace.
