Prince Harry’s mental health charity, Heads Together, has invited a U.K.-based transgender youth charity to join its wellness efforts, according to The Telegraph.

The charity, Mermaids, participated in a roundtable this month at a YMCA outside of London that was organized by the Royal Foundation, Prince William and Prince Harry’s umbrella charity. A Royal Foundation spokesperson told the newspaper that Heads Together meets with groups like Mermaids “to best understand the issues young people are dealing with today, and gain a clear understanding of what support is being made available.”

Mermaids tweeted its thanks Tuesday to the Duke of Sussex “for his unwavering support of young people and promotion of positive mental health and well-being.”
