Prince Harry inspires Britain to talk about their mental health by leading by example!

19th April 2017

Prince Harry talks about mental health

Prince Harry spoke to Telegraph Journalist Bryony Gordon, who has started a new podcast series called Mad World.

Mad Worlds first episode features a 30-minute open conversation with Prince Harry, where he makes a point in saying:

“There’s huge merit in talking about your issues.”

He speaks openly about his own personal experiences. From how he had struggled in the past with dealing with his mental health, what worked for him, and what it meant not only to himself but the people around him.

The context is relatable, humble and empathetic. Harry adds a dollop of humour and bucket loads of charm by taking negatives and turning them into positives.

Some of Prince Harry’s key quotes: He went on to say

“Everyone has a stressful week Monday to Friday; wouldn’t it be great if everyone had someone to speak to? Where you could offload all of your weeks grief?”

“If you could just dump that on a Friday, how much better would our weekends be!?”

“I can safely say that once I offload my stuff to somebody else, I feel so much better! Now that’s not a selfish thing, because if you are doing it with someone who is a professional, then it’s their responsibility to dump the stuff off them, but I’m sure they are used to all of that stuff”

“Because of the process I have been through in the last few years, I’ve now been able to take my work seriously, been able to take my private life seriously as well. And have been able to put blood, sweat and tears into the things that really make a difference. The things that I think will make a difference to everybody else”

“Everybody struggles, we are not robots, we are humans”

Good on our Prince! He is a powerful advocate in rallying for everyone’s mental health! He really drives the fact that most mental health is relatable and treatable, and that speaking puts you in the right direction of your own personal journey.
