Kate Middleton Helps Children Realize Their Full Potential With Place2Be PSA

The expectant mother chatted to the youngsters on her visit to Reach Academy Feltham where she filmed her video message

In the video she said: "Childhood is an incredibly important moment in our lives". Last year, she hosted a roundtable discussion on the issue at Buckingham Palace, joined by members of Maternal Mental Health Alliance, the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, and other bodies. "Our experience of the world at this early stage helps to shape who we become as adults and how we begin to feel comfortable in our own skin", Kate says in the video, which features the Duchess speaking with students and parents at Feltham's Reach Academy. The mum of two believes the best course of action is for school teachers, leaders and support staff to band together with parents to foster "emotional strength" in children.

Just a few weeks after taking a solo royal outing to visit a school in West London that works closely with British children's mental health charity Place2Be, Kate Middleton has partnered with the organization once again to continue her work of raising awareness about childhood struggles with mental health.

Her video message ties in with a new campaign by Place2Be - called Being Ourselves - which helps youngsters tackle low self-esteem and create a positive images of themselves.

The Duchess of Cambridge has collaborated with children's charity Place2Be, of which she's Royal patron, to launch a new mental health campaign, #BeingOurselves, coinciding with Children's Mental Health Week this week.

Place2Be chief executive Catherine Roche said: "We know from our work in schools that some children find it hard to think of themselves positively, as it's all too easy nowadays to compare ourselves negatively to others, especially online".
