Supporting those on the frontline

As the country responds to COVID-19, there is an unprecedented amount of pressure on frontline workers across the UK, as well as on the nation’s mental health.

Many of the practical and emotional challenges that people are facing can also be risk factors for mental health, with many feeling worried, anxious or isolated during these challenging times. Meanwhile those working on the frontline of the crisis across the UK are dealing with all of these challenges while putting their physical and mental health on the line and facing traumatic situations on a daily basis, to keep us safe and well.

Their Royal Highnesses and The Royal Foundation are committed to supporting these extraordinary people on the frontline of responding to COVID-19 in the UK, and supporting the mental health sector as it responds to the immediate and long-term mental health consequences of the pandemic.
