Royal uses school mental health conference to praises ‘vital’ work of teachers.

The Duchess of Cambridge has praised teachers for the “vital” role they play in shaping pupils’ lives and called for more support for their wellbeing. Speaking at the Mental Health in Education conference, she said teachers played a key role in helping children to develop at the most important point in their lives.

“Over the last eight years working with charities, I’ve met some of our leading experts in mental health, addiction, family breakdown, homelessness and education. They have taught me over and over again that the root cause of so many of today’s social problems can be traced right back to the very earliest years of a person’s life – and often over generations.”

“It is also clear that the positive development of our children is directly linked to those who care for them: teachers, carers and parents. And as we’ve heard today, it is therefore vital that we support teachers with their own wellbeing so that they can provide the best level of care for all children in their schools and communities in which they work.”
