On the 10th of October 2015, me and my team at Mindkit had the pleasure of meeting the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to mark World Mental Health Day! Volunteers from across the whole project from Harrow, Hackney, Bromley, Lewisham and Richmond all took part in discussing our roles as Wellbeing trainers and ran a brilliant Mindkit session that the Duke and Duchess took part in! It was a huge success and we had a great time working together, and running our wellbeing sessions to the young people at Harrow College.
Having the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at the event gave mental health the spotlight and the media publicity that it deserves, not just in the UK but globally.
