THE DUKE OF CAMBRIDGE WILL VISIT THE DATA OBSERVATORY FOR A PRESENTATION ON THE IMPACT OF HEADS TOGETHER

IMPERIAL COLLEGE LONDON

Friday 6th October, 2017

The Duke of Cambridge will visit the Data Observatory at Imperial College London to receive a briefing on the progress the Heads Together campaign and its partners have made towards changing the national conversation on mental health. Working with YouGov, and experts from the Data Science Institute at Imperial College London, Heads Together will present independently verified data outlining the progress made towards changing the national conversation on mental health. Importantly the research will reveal the remaining challenges that will inform the next steps in Heads Together’s work. Building on this successful foundation, Heads Together will now focus on providing support to help people have those conversations, focussing on schools, workplaces and the military, alongside other projects to be announced over the coming year.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry founded the Heads Together campaign in February 2016, in partnership with eight leading mental health charities to highlight how the power of conversations, being able to talk openly about mental health challenges, can be life-changing.

Heads Together has commissioned the largest ever survey involving 14,000 members of the British public in total, of how people talk about mental health in the UK and a measure of how this conversation is changing. The Data Science Institute offers invaluable expertise in visualising and analysing results from very large datasets.

During this engagement The Duke, together with representatives from The Royal Foundation and their charity partners, will hear about the research, including the evidence around ongoing challenges to be tackled, which has underpinned the second phase of the campaign.

The Data Observatory is the largest of its kind in Europe. Opened in November 2015, it provides an opportunity for academics and industry to visualise data in a way that uncovers new insights, and promotes the communication of complex data sets and analysis in an immersive and multi-dimensional environment.
