In partnership with The Ministry of Defence

This programme is led by The Duke of Sussex, and was launched when HRH was a patron of The Royal Foundation.

On World Mental Health Day, in October 2017, The Royal Foundation launched a partnership with The Ministry of Defence. The partnership was formed following the Heads Together campaign to change the national conversation on mental health.

Working in partnership

Driven by The Duke of Sussex, this collaboration with the Ministry of Defence will see the development and subsequent implementation of training resources to promote the good management of good mental health across the Defence community.

This work will provide a simple introduction to mental health and will lean on progressive learning packages concentrating on techniques that have been known and implemented across the world of sports-science for decades. Providing these resources to people in the Defence community builds upon the idea that if we are aware of and proactive about our mental health and are able to create healthy habits, we can live happier and more productive lives.

“Today, we are saying that taking mental health seriously is what professional and dedicated service men and women must do to be above the rest and leading from the front.”
