The Duke of Sussex has today announced a partnership with Oprah Winfrey
Prince Harry, 34, has previously spoken out about battling 'numerous breakdowns' while coming to terms with mother Diana's death, and the cause will be particularly close to his heart.
This commitment builds on Harry's long-standing work on issues and initiatives regarding mental health, and has seen him share his personal experience and advocate for those who silently suffer.
In 2017, together with The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Harry, 34, launched Heads Together, a mental health initiative spearheaded by The Royal Foundation.
The Duke of Sussex said today: 'I am incredibly proud to be working alongside Oprah on this vital series which we have been developing together for several months.
'I truly believe that good mental health – mental fitness – is the key to powerful leadership, productive communities and a purpose-driven self.
'It is a huge responsibility to get this right as we bring you the facts, the science and the awareness of a subject that is so relevant during these times.
'Our hope is that this series will be positive, enlightening and inclusive – sharing global stories of unparalleled human spirit fighting back from the darkest places, and the opportunity for us to understand ourselves and those around us better.'
