Kate Middleton and Prince William feel very strongly on the subject of mental health, especially those that affect young children. They have joined together in another quest for another charitable venture. A royal aide revealed to People Magazine, both Kate and William want to focus on mental health services and emotional well-being for those in need. According to a news story in Woman’s Day on August 11, Prince William has already started visiting mental health facilities to learn how he can make an impact around England though speaking engagements to help the depressed and struggling youths of today.
When Kate gave birth to Princess Charlotte last May she was a sight to see. Her hair color and styling had been just perfect and every strand was in place. That’s because her hairstylist, Amanda Cook Tucker and colorist, Richard Ward came to St. Mary’s Hospital in London to take care of the Duchess’ needs. Having her hair done prior to leaving the hospital was effective in many ways. It made Kate feel and look great. It also gave her a sense of renewal which is wonderful for one’s mental image; if you look good you tend to feel even better.
After the news heard Kate hair stylist was able to come to the hospital to make her look beautiful, many other mothers-to-be have been requesting the same privilege, so they, too will look great once their babies are born too. At the Lenox Hill Hospital, obstetric nurse, Lisa Schavrien spoke to the New York Times realizes that Kate Middleton has started a new trend that others want to follow. She has obtained several hairstylists’ numbers to keep on hand. This way they will be available to other expecting mothers so they too, can have their hair done before leaving the hospital with their infants.
Kate may be a trendsetter, although it isn’t just a new trend that is taking place, it is also another way to help mothers that may be on the verge of suffering from postpartum depression. This new trend is not just a way to look more beautiful or glamorous; it is also a way to help new mothers to feel better about their look and self-esteem. This simple little process can be good for mental health too. A simple little haircut, new styling, a dye job or body wave can make a world of difference if someone is on the verge of depression or shows other signs of postpartum symptoms.
This is another way Kate Middleton is helping others, although innocently. Her needs after her last pregnancy has brought about a new trend that mothers-to-be that are seeking, want to enjoy and actively think is a wonderful idea that they also need to make them feel better inside before heading home with their infants. Sometimes Kate can get a trend without trying and other times she is working hard doing her royal duties to help others on real quests to aid in mental health.
During the time Kate was setting a new trend for expectant mothers, Kate Middleton and Prince William have joined together in another force to help support mental health. Prince William has a strong focus on mental health, especially when it concerns children. He did a two year stint with the East Anglian Air Ambulance last March where he became a paramedic and obtained his air ambulance helicopter pilot license. He also wants to help young people who are struggling with many issues they are forced to face. Kate has made mental health one of her key causes as well. She established children’s mental health as one of her causes and is a patron of the Place2Be charity. This charity provides emotional support to school children.
Prince William is very interested in helping those suffering from; breakdowns, cyber-bullying, homophobic bullying and depression. Prince William understands the struggles of the young, especially those who are grieving over the loss of a loved one in their family. He lost his own mother, Princess Diana, at the age of fifteen and want to help young children in any aspect that he can and is exploring this sector to see how he will be able to assist young children who have mental health issues to provide a positive impact on their lives so they won’t have to deal with all their issues alone and scared. Prince William wants to be more involved in this special cause once his time working as an East Anglian Air Ambulance pilot is completed.
