The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have given their support to a campaign to protect people’s mental health during the coronavirus outbreak.
Public Health England (PHE) has launched new advice on wellbeing.
The guidance encourages people to keep in contact with family and friends by phone or social media and stick to a regular routine and sleeping pattern.
Prince William and Catherine said: “The last few weeks have been anxious and unsettling for everyone.”
They added: “We have to take time to support each other and find ways to look after our mental health.”
“By pulling together and taking simple steps each day, we can all be better prepared for the times ahead.”
The Cambridges have taken a close interest in the issue and in 2016 launched the Heads Together campaign, along with the Duke of Sussex, aimed at ending the stigma around mental health.
Mental health charities are also being given an extra £5m in funding by the government to help expand their services.
