Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have just released a project together. This time they will campaign on how important it is to maintain mental health. Through a program called Shout, they will provide mental health support services through short text messages via Crisis Text Line.
Not long ago William released a video inviting people in the UK to volunteer for Shout. According to available data, 100 million messages have been sent and 5,000 volunteers have been trained since the program was released.
“They (Kate, Will, Harry and Meghan) are the first celebrities in the world who are serious about mental health problems. It is close to them and they have done great things to popularize this issue and reduce negative stigma,” said Nancy Lubin CEO of Crisis Text Line reported by People.
Furthermore, it turned out that the idea to start this project had been around since 2016. Precisely when Crisis CEO Text Line met Prince William at a dinner event.
“They have visited our office several times in the UK, they also met with volunteers. They were very involved. We could not find another spokesperson. Mental health problems have become an epidemic in the current generation,” continued the CEO.
