“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,” began the message.
Shout will provide 24/7 assistance to anyone who feels they need it. The service is of course nationwide and is supported by The Royal Foundation. It is considered part of Heads Together and was created by Mental Health Innovations in partnership with Crisis Text Line.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, as well as The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, have banned together for the imitative, which is extremely important to all four of them. They have gone to great lengths to ensure Shout is accessible to everyone, everywhere, every time someone should want to use it.
The text message service will have trained volunteers who are there to assist in moments of crisis. Each volunteers goal will be to return the person to a calm state of mind. Right now, the organization has 1,000 volunteers willing to work at Shout.
However, the royal family wants to have that number up to 4,000 by the end of the year. The palace has encouraged anyone who wishes to be part of the new imitative to apply on the organization’s website.

The fab four all expressed their excitement over Shout in a joint statement that puts all their differences aside for one crucial project.
“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,” ended the statement by Harry, Meghan, William, and Kate.
Rumors have been swirling for months that there is a rift between Prince Harry and Prince William, as well as that Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle are at war. Whether there is any truth to those allegations or not, one thing is factual. The gang is coming together for mental health, a subject close to all of their hearts.
