Książęca para Cambridge i Sussex połączyła wspólne siły. A jeszcze niedawno nawet nie przyszłoby nam do głowy, że będą razem współpracować. Zagraniczne media rozpisywały się, że Kate i Meghan nie przepadają za sobą, a przez to cierpi relacja braci.

Nie spełniło się największe marzenie Meghan Markle. Wszystko przez Harrego…

Najwyraźniej były to plotki albo zakopali wojenny topór. Rodzeństwo: William i Harry oraz ich żony uruchomili stronę internetową Shout – pomoc osobom w załamaniu nerwowym. Za pomocą wiadomości tekstowych aplikacja będzie oferować wsparcie osobom, które mają myśli samobójcze, są uzależnione, okaleczają się, czy są zastraszane.

Aplikacją Shout zajmą się wolontariusze ze wpierani specjalistów klinicznych.

Jesteśmy niesamowicie podekscytowani uruchomieniem tej usługi i wiedząc jeszcze, że ma ona potencjał, bo każdego dnia może pomóc tysiącom osób. W ciągu ostatnich kilku miesięcy Shout był po cichu testowany, a Harry, Meghan, Catherine i ja mogliśmy zobaczyć jak serwis pracuje

– powiedział na prezentacji strony Shout, książę William.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have announced the launch of Shout, a new text messaging helpline that supports people in crisis. Shout operates 24/7 and connects people in need to trained volunteers who provide help at a time when it is most needed; enabling them to move from a moment of crisis to a calm state and form a plan for next steps to find longer-term support. Shout is powered by a team of volunteers who are at the heart of the service. They are trained to create a safe space for people experiencing mental health challenges. Working remotely, volunteers are part of a supportive and connected online community of 1,000, with the ambition of boosting that community to 4,000 by the end of the year. Their Royal Highnesses said: “We are incredibly excited to be launching this service, knowing it has the potential to reach thousands of vulnerable people every day. Over the last few months Shout has started working quietly behind the scenes. We have all been able to see the service working up close and are so excited for its future. “At the heart of this service will be an incredible national volunteer community, one which needs to grow to allow us to support more people in crisis. We hope that many more of you will join us and be part of something very special.”

Today in the UK, a critical new 24/7 text helpline has launched - @giveusashoutinsta This free text messaging helpline is a private, silent and trusted way, for those experiencing mental health challenges to find a safe space to seek help and support. This is an extension of the @heads_together initiative backed by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Earlier last year, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex began supporting this vital program behind the scenes by hosting a meeting at Kensington Palace with contributors and partners. Last November, Their Royal Highnesses also made a surprise visit to meet with a group of Shout volunteers, and participated in a panel with mental health activist @bryonygordon hearing firsthand how the volunteers have found making the connection with vulnerable texters, a majority of whom are under 25, so rewarding - helping to get them through a moment of crisis to a calmer place, and giving them courage to find longer-term support. Powered by a team of trained volunteers, Shout has already quietly enlisted and trained 1,000 volunteers over the last 12 months, whom in turn have helped 60,000 people. SHOUT is modeled on @crisistextline in the US, which since 2013 has processed more than 100 million messages, Shout is the largest initiative of The Royal Foundation to date, in partnership with @heads_together. Tapping into the UK’s volunteer community, Shout aims to recruit 3,000 additional volunteers by the end of the year. Mobilizing a volunteer community with this innovative use of technology will go a long way in helping people get the critical help they need, often in the darkest of times, when those are privately and silently suffering and afraid to seek help. To sign up to volunteer, visit www.giveusashout.org Be the change you wish to see in the world.
