Prince William talks mental health over game of Jenga

The Duke of Cambridge kicks off a conversation about mental health with stars from men’s and women’s football over a game of Jenga.

As part of the Heads Up campaign, The Duke of Cambridge joined Crystal Palace’s Andros Townsend, Watford FC’s Troy Deeney, Manchester United’s Scott McTominay, Wycombe Wanderers’ Adebayo Akinfenwa and former Arsenal women’s player Kelly Smith for a game of Jenga – with a difference.

Drawing on their own experiences on and off the football pitch, the players shared personal anecdotes as they opened up about how they manage pressure, and discussed with The Duke the importance of talking and why mental health should no longer be a taboo subject.

The film was created to help launch the ‘Heads Up Weekends’, which will see football unite over the next two weekends in a bid to kick off the biggest ever conversation around mental health.
