Guessing we won't see his brother at Heads Together events anymore and that HT remains with the Cambridge's foundation.
 Thinking

As it should. I thought the company line was that HT was a Kate brainwave.

The royal team talk programme was actually really good and well considered, so I have high hopes for the documentary

This sort of thing I think will "smash the stigma" more than their silly, borderline insulting speeches about mental health (well, depression and maybe anxiety, because they aren't going any further).

I have high hopes for this.
Suicide is the biggest killer of men under 50 in the UK. Yet the proportion of males who seek help for their mental health struggles is incredibly lower. Maybe this is due to the popular idea that seeking help or admitting you need help is a sign of weakness or "unmanly", an idea perpetuated by centuries of society enforcing such ideas on masculinity.
Football is the most popular sport supported by males in the UK, and with that there's a supposed ideal of what a man is; one of a tough guy who can take knocks, he won't cry etc (unless it's relegation day in which male football fans are quite happy to openly weep).
So I think targeting this vulnerable and under-represented area could really do a lot of good, even save lives.
The statistics from the text service Speak Up founded by the Heads Together (I think that's right?) foundation has already had a high degree of use in the UK, showing its success and the ability of the Cambridges to be involved in a successful initiative.
Wills and Kate are taking on a very big but important mission in raising awareness about mental health and trying to break the stigma. It won't be an overnight success, but little steps in the right direction will do wonders, and genuinely will save lives.

We also focus so much on women's issues, which is understandable, but at a neglect of the men in our lives telling them they should be listened to, loved, and feel worthy. That we forget men also suffer depression, anxiety, abuse, and we must work at that too if we want an equal society where we respect and look after everyone in our lives not just certain people.

ITA.  Though to be completely accurate he did a few things the first half of July.  First day of school is Thursday the 5th so an engagement on the 6th is the best I expected.  Hopefully Kate will start back the week after.

I love that he is actually doing BAFTA related stuff. I hope it's to snub Meghan because I'm petty like that and I know William is. Remember when he refused to do anything BAFTA related? There's gotta be a reason now!

Good to see that he's on to some things this month! He has to have at least two engagements each week, he is doing better than before but he needs to step up his game.

Basically with Will and Kate it's like with a flummi ball...Up and Down and Up and Down.

If he does 3 engagments a week same as Kate that would be fantastic! The monarchy needs good things to hope for.

3 solid engagement days per week would be a good number for them right now. I would like the family to change to reporting a calendar of some sort including private meetings (don't have to say who with) so we could get a better sense of the work they do. More accountability.
