The Heads Together campaign is spearheaded by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry and aims to end stigma around mental health by changing the national conversation on mental health and wellbeing.There has been huge progress made to tackle stigma surrounding mental health in recent decades but can still attract negative associations, experience and language.
Through this campaign, Their Royal Highnesses are keen to build on the great work that is already taking place across the country, to ensure that people feel comfortable with their everyday mental wellbeing, feel able to support their friends and families through difficult times, and that stigma no longer prevents people getting help they need. The campaign is a partnership with other charities with decades of experience in tackling stigma, raising awareness, and providing vital help for people with mental health challenges.
