Kate and William have been mental health advocates for years, launching the Heads Together organization in 2016 alongside Prince Harry.

"Too often, people feel afraid to admit that they are struggling with their mental health. This fear of prejudice and judgement stops people from getting help and can destroy families and end lives," their mission statement reads. "Heads Together wants to help people feel much more comfortable with their everyday mental well-being and have the practical tools to support their friends and family."

"Heads Together is a mental health initiative spearheaded by The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, which combines a campaign to tackle stigma and change the conversation on mental health with fundraising for a series of innovative new mental health services," reads the website.
