Prince Harry launching mental health campaign for British soldiers

The Duke of Duchess and Cambridge and Prince Harry Receive Very Good News

Princess Diana's son described those who fought for their nation as "prized assets" which need to be nurtured.

Harry, who spent 10 years in the military, including two tours of Afghanistan, joined forces with Britain's Defence Secretary Michael Fallon to promote a new initiative to offer mental health support to those in the armed forces, their families and veterans. Prince Harry also founded the Invictus Games in 2014 and spoke about how the sporting events have helped injured servicemen and women. "We surely have to think of them as high-performance athletes, carrying all their kit, equipment and a rifle", he continued. "Crucially, fighting fitness is not just about physical fitness. It is just as much about mental fitness too", Harry said.

Harry was in the military for a decade, and from his first-hand experiences knows how important mental well-being is.

The Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Campaign and Prince Harry has announced that it is to invest £2m in a digital mental health start-up that will develop new digital tools to help people start conversations around mental health. Pictured: Prince Harry speaks at an event on mental health at the Ministry of Defence (MoD) on October 9, 2017 in London, England.

The partnership is the latest in a series of royal efforts to promote greater understanding and openness around mental health through the work of the Foundation's Heads Together campaign, launched in May a year ago.

In February, before the campaign gathered momentum, a YouGov survey of 14,000 people revealed 45% of men and 52% of women were talking about mental health.

Speaking at the Data Observatory at Imperial College London on Friday, Prince William described the news as like "exam results day" and said what they managed to achieve was "amazing" and "a lot to process". "We should have the same approach to conditioning for our mental health too".

William and Harry continue to talk openly about their struggles with their mother's death, while Kate has also spoken openly about her struggles with motherhood during a mental health talk.

Discussing the statistic that three quarters of suicides in the United Kingdom are men, he stated: "That's still a worrying statistic though, it really is". If we've at 'east made a big impression there we can work on the wider societal problems. But I think it all has to start at home.
