The Duchess of Cambridge has released a video talking about the importance of helping children to cope with difficult times. She is the patron of children’s mental health charity a Place2Be.

The National Association of Head Teachers says with a fifth of children having a mental health problem before age 11, it is a key concern.¬†Russell Hobby, general secretary of the heads’ union, NAHT, says: “We know the government is determined to improve children’s mental health but there’s still a danger that some children will take untreated mental problems into adulthood.”

The chief executive of the mental health charity Place2Be, Catherine Roche, said children faced all sorts of challenges, such as coping with parental separation, the illness or death of a loved one, and dealing with substance abuse and domestic violence.
