The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge "feel very strongly" about getting mental health support for their children if they need it.

Kate, patron of the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families - a children's mental health charity - said getting early support for a child who is struggling to cope is "the best possible thing we can do".

The charity has launched a series of expert podcasts in a bid to help parents understand and manage child and family mental health problems.

"They show how with the right help, children have a good chance of overcoming their issues while they are still young, and can have the bright future they deserve," said Kate.
