The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended the first Global Ministerial Mental Health Summit in London on October 9th. They attended a workstream on ‘Children, Young People and the Next Generation’ where they heard presentations on two case studies of active mental health programmes from Slovenia and the USA, before visiting the exhibition area and meeting with representatives from a number of organisations to hear more about their mental health campaigns and programmes. The Duke and Duchess also viewed the work of Dairo Vargas, a contemporary fine artist from Columbia who was painting an original piece of art at the Summit, inspired by the day’s events. Finally, they visited a Friendship Bench, part of an innovative programme from Zimbabwe which has taught elderly Zimbabwean women the skills to become city lay health workers. The summit is being co-hosted by the UK Government and the OECD and will run from October 9th-10th.
