Kate Middleton Urges Parents to Seek Help For Kids With Mental Health Issues

The Duchess of Cambridge continues to be passionate about a cause near and dear to her heart.

The mother of two helped launch a series of podcasts designed to help parents understand children's mental health on Sunday, and urged parents to not be ashamed to get support for their kids, should they need it.

"One in three adults still say they would be embarrassed to seek help for their child's mental health. No parent would fail to call the doctor if their child developed a fever, yet some children are tackling tough times without the support that can help them because the adults in their life are scared to ask," the Duchess said in a statement released through Kensington Palace. It doesn't need to be like this. ... Knowing this, both William and I feel very strongly that we wouldn't hesitate to get expert support for George and Charlotte if they need it."

WATCH: Kate Middleton Rocks a Yellow Recycled Dress to Wimbledon, Makes a Cameo in Serena Williams' Snapchat

Middleton was speaking out in support of the Anna Freud National Center for Children and Families, which works to improve the lives of children and young people with mental health problems. The charity provides specialist help, training, and carries out research.

"I hope that this excellent series of podcasts by the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families will go some way to help families overcome that fear of what happens next if they look for professional support," she said. "They illustrate that many of the therapies are actually very simple and practical steps that include the whole family to help children make sense of the world around them."

HRH The Duchess of Cambridge and Patron of the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, has supported the launch of a series of podcasts designed to help parents understand children's mental health. The Duchess said: "One in three adults still say they would be embarrassed to seek help for their child's mental health. No parent would fail to call the doctor if their child developed a fever, yet some children are tackling tough times without the support that can help them because the adults in their life are scared to ask. It doesn’t need to be like this. Throughout my work with family and child support organisations, one thing that has stood out to me time and again is that getting early support for a child who is struggling to cope is the best possible thing we can do to help our children as they grow up. Knowing this, both William and I feel very strongly that we wouldn’t hesitate to get expert support for George and Charlotte if they need it. I hope that this excellent series of podcasts by the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families will go some way to help families overcome that fear of what happens next if they look for professional support. They illustrate that many of the therapies are actually very simple and practical steps that include the whole family to help children make sense of the world around them. They show how with the right help, children have a good chance of overcoming their issues while they are still young, and can have the bright future they deserve. Please do listen, and share them with your friends and family and let's change the way we all talk to each other about our mental health." You can listen to the podcasts by searching for Child In Mind on the Anna Freud account iTunes or Soundcloud.

This isn't the first time the 34-year-old royal has spoken out on the importance of children's mental health. In February, she wrote a heartfelt essay for the Huffington Post.

"We hope to encourage George and Charlotte to speak about their feelings, and to give them the tools and sensitivity to be supportive peers to their friends as they get older," she wrote about her and Prince William raising their children. "We know there is no shame in a young child struggling with their emotions or suffering from a mental illness."

"Parenting is hard enough without letting prejudices stop us from asking for the help we need for ourselves and our children," she added.
