Kate previously visited the center’s family school in September as part of her rolling program designed to spotlight the work being done for vulnerable youngsters.

When she was there in the fall, Kate was praised by kids and experts alike for her knowledge of the subject.

The upcoming visit “reflects [her] continued interest in child mental health issues and the importance of early intervention and working with the whole family to provide children with in-school mental health services,” a statement from her office at Kensington Palace says.

“[She] is keen to draw attention to the ways in which this charity is working to lead a step change in children’s and young people’s mental health care.”
