Prince Harry and Oprah Winfrey to create mental health TV series
Prince Harry is a vocal supporter of battling the stigma around mental health, and for his next project, he's teaming up with Oprah Winfrey to create an Apple TV series all about mental health; and Meghan Markle could be involved too.
An article from the International Business Times explained:
"Prince Harry and Oprah Winfrey's collaboration for an Apple TV mental health series is in the making. Details about the show have begun to roll out and Meghan Markle is thought to be involved in it, too.
According to Daily Mail, the details come through a mental health charity named Combat Stress. The charitable organisation confirmed that it has been a part of the series' production.
It was revealed that Prince Harry's upcoming series will showcase visits to mental health institutions and treatment centres in the UK. It is believed that Combat Stress is one of those organisations that the Duke of Sussex will be highlighting in the series.
The organisation which calls itself the UK's leading charity for veterans' mental health has been in service for over 100 years. They have been involved in supporting former servicemen and women dealing with mental trauma, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression, and other psychological issues. They are dedicated to providing personalised treatment to each veteran which is usually a combination of psychological and psychiatric treatment.
The royal dad is no stranger to the struggles of mental health issues. Not only has he dedicated his efforts to promote the cause, but he has also been a victim of it. As per the report, the duke recently opened up about how he needed counselling to cope up with the death of his mother Princess Diana. The royal was merely 13, when he had to confront the tragedy of losing his mother.
Speaking with the publication, a spokesperson of the charity confirmed that they have been a part of the filming. Also, a few visits to UK-based hospitals and health centres have already been organised."
