Prince William & Kate Middleton Team Up To Support Suicide Prevention
The royal couple met with suicide survivor Jonny Benjamin and the man who helped save his life, Neil Laybourn, to continue their mission to help tackle suicide prevention.
During the meeting, William said “Someone told me five people a day try to kill themselves. I was just blown away by the statistics,” according to People. “For both of us, the mental health piece has got lots of aspects. It’s such a big issue that we need to do something about it. We feel it’s been raised higher up the ladder. It’s suddenly bubbling just under the surface. Now we need to get up to the next level, to the surface.”
‘We see through the work that we do with addiction, homelessness and knife crime that a lot of it stems back to childhood,” Kate added.
FYI: Kate is wearing an Erdem coat paired with a Jonathan Saunders dress.
