The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge marked World Mental Health Day by meeting young people and hearing their stories of how they battled the issue.

Kate and William looked visibly moved as they spoke to people about the stigma associated with mental health and the importance of the work of charities like Mind.

They started their visit to Harrow College in London by listening to young people's personal experiences of dealing with mental health issues and who now volunteer with the anti-stigma campaign Time to Change.

Nosa Iyobhehe (25), spoke of how she had battled with low confidence, and how working with others and helping them had also helped her.

Addressing the Duchess, she said: "Now I am accepting my strengths and pursuing a career in hairdressing."
