The duke volunteered with вик
, the UK’s first crisis text line to launch in May 2019. The organization was launched by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex after a £ 3 million investment from the Royal Foundation, a statement from Kensington Place.
“I’m going to share a little secret with you guys, I’m actually on the volunteer platform,” Prince William told members of the Shout team during a video call last month.
Princess Kate herself has volunteered to call for “checking and chatting” for those who isolate themselves or are vulnerable, Kensington Palace said.
The calls are part of the Royal Health Service’s National Health Service volunteer program, which was set up to support the National Health Service and the Covid-19 vulnerable, according to the announcement.
Prince William has been very vocal in the past when it comes to mental health. In January he told a one-minute video encouraging 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 topic.
In 2018, the Duke launched the website Mental health in the workplace
which provides resources and toolkits to improve mental health in the workplace.
