The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry have stepped out to mark World Mental Health Day, and raise awareness for those suffering with mental health problems.

The royal trio spoke out at an event organised by their Heads Together organisation, which campaigns for the importance of ending stigma about mental health.

“Mental health is not a dirty word” and we all have mental health like we do physical health, good or ill. But not seeking help at those times when it all seems too much, or we are depressed or anxious, can impact the rest of our lives. Put simply, the three of us want to make asking for help no longer a big deal,” said The Duke.

Catherine and William wave to the eager crowds.

“The three of us have learnt a lot in the past few months as we have met people. The conclusion we are coming to is that the more we all talk about this, the more collectively as a society we can do to support one another.”

William, Harry and KAte then took a trip on the London Eye with guests who have suffered psychological problems and their supporters.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have long been crusading for mental health and have previously spoken out and [urged parents not to be afraid about seeking expert help for their own families.]

The royals took time to meet with both carers and those directly affected by mental illness.
