THE PRINCE AND PRINCESS OF WALES WILL CARRY OUT ENGAGEMENTS TO MARK WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY

Tuesday 10th October – Thursday 12th October 2023

The Prince and Princess of Wales will carry out engagements across the country next week to mark World Mental Health Day which takes place on Tuesday 10th October.

Their Royal Highnesses, together with The Royal Foundation and in partnership with The Mix and with the support of BBC Radio 1, will host a forum for young people in Birmingham. Exploring our Emotional Worlds will bring together 100 young delegates nominated by ten leading mental health and youth engagement charities to start a conversation about how they manage their emotions and how they can be supported to build their resilience and protective factors such as healthy relationships which make it easier to navigate bumps in the road as they go through life.

Featuring famous faces from Radio 1 and the wider mental health space, the event will give the young attendees the opportunity to talk about the specific mental health challenges their generation faces, explore what more they could do to understand and manage their emotions and discuss the solutions that could support them to better look after their own and each other’s mental wellbeing.

Over the subsequent two days, the Prince and Princess will undertake further engagements to highlight the importance of mental wellbeing, including with university students and emergency responders. They will also shine a light on the interaction between mental health and sport. The series of engagements follows Their Royal Highnesses longstanding commitment to encourage people to speak openly about their mental health, including through the milestone Heads Together campaign that was launched in 2016.

Details of the engagements will be announced in due course.
