Prince Harry and Oprah Winfrey have partnered up as cocreators and executive producers on a new mental health series launching on Apple in 2020. The office of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced on the couple's new Instagram that the pair have been developing the series for several months.
The series will be a "multi-part documentary series focusing on mental illness and mental wellness." The aim is to inspire people to be open and honest in conversations surrounding mental health, in an effort to continue ending stigma and helping those work through challenges they may face. Prince Harry is committed to the initiatives and charities he works with to advocate and support those with mental health issues, often sharing his personal experiences. It's no secret that Oprah is also committed to making the world a better place with her charity work.
In the statement, Prince Harry said, "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. I am incredibly proud to be working alongside Oprah on this vital series." We look forward to seeing the great work from Oprah and Prince Harry.
