Royal visit to Denbigh focuses on mental health

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Vale of Clwyd Mind in Denbigh on Friday 20th November 2015 to mark their commitment to mental health issues.

The Royal visit follows just days after the announcement that hospital admissions for mental health problems are 30% higher among teenagers in North Wales than in the res of Wales. Statistics also show that suicide rates among men in Denbighshire and Conwy are 'significantly higher' than the Welsh average.

The Royal couple visited the Vale of Clwyd Mind's Men's Sheds project, where a group of men aged between 30 and 93 meet weekly and work shoulder to shoulder on a range of projects.

As part of their visit to Wales, the Duke and Duchess met those who have directly benefited from the safe and supportive environment created at the project and learnt about the crucial role Men's Sheds in maintaining the mental wellbeing of a potentially vulnerable group.

The Royal couple also saw a demonstration of woodworking, and experienced a Peace garden, Sensory garden created by the group and work being carried out at an allotment. Entertainment was provided by Vale of Clwyd Mind's performance group Musical Meatballs in Mind.

The members talked to the Royal couple about the range of projects which they have developed, and about the dramatic improvement that have been made in their lives thanks to the project.

Director of Vale of Clwyd Mind, Philip Williams said: 'We are very proud that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge chose Vale of Clwyd Mind to showcase its work and listen to personal stories of recovery. Their visit will help to raise public awareness of mental health problems and how Vale of Clwyd Mind empower more people to ake for help when they need it.'

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge continue to focus global attention on mental health
