Prince Harry arrived in Nottingham today (9 October) to mark World Mental Health Day, returning for his ninth visit.

The Duke of Sussex has been at Nottingham Academy's Ransom Road Campus and visiting two community initiatives in St Ann's.

The Duke will be starting his day by visiting EPIC Partners mentoring at the Academy followed by Community Recording Studio.

Both initiatives aim to improve opportunities for young people and prevent them from becoming involved in youth violence and crime.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited Nottingham Academy in November 2017 as their first official visit following their engagement.

As part of the trip today, The Duke was reunited with a number of students who he met in 2017 as well as new Year 7 and 8 students who are on the mentoring scheme.

The Duke was also invited to join discussions and share some of his own experiences during a school assembly with Year 11 students who have been taking lessons that focus on how to keep their minds healthy.
