We are proud to announce that Best Beginnings, Hunters’ charity of the year, has been selected by the Royal Foundation as one of its seven chosen charities to champion a change in the way we talk about mental health across the UK.
The Heads Together campaign is being spearheaded by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry. It will be the biggest single project Their Royal Highnesses have undertaken together. The Heads Together campaign aims to change the national conversation on mental well-being and is a partnership with inspiring charities with decades of experience in tackling stigma, raising awareness, and providing vital help for people with mental health challenges.
The Heads Together campaign has the huge privilege of being the 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon Charity of the Year and, as a member of the campaign, Best Beginnings will have 15 Marathon places.
Best Beginnings was chosen because of the support and information they offer through their projects and resources, particularly because of the accessibility of guidance and support about keeping mentally and physically healthy during pregnancy and beyond in their award-winning free Baby Buddy app. Baby Buddy includes over 200 films and interactive content and features to help women and their partners on their emotional and physical transition to parenthood. Endorsed by the Department of Health, a number of Royal Colleges and other professional organisations, and developed with significant input from parents, Baby Buddy is here to inform, empower and enable women to seek support as soon as they need it.
