It’s no secret that mental health is on the rise. Australian statistics are showing one in six men will die by suicide today and 98% of work place deaths are men. 1 in 5 men will experience anxiety, which will onset at age 24. Goodness me!
The Duke of Sussex posted a video of him chatting with mega popstar and friend Sheeran over a kitchen table after teasing fans with a five-second clip the previous day.
The short skit starts with the pair discussing what appears to be a serious matter, but they soon discover they’ve got their wires crossed.
Both Prince Harry and Ed Sheeran want to ensure that not just today but every day, you look after yourself, your friends and those around you.
“There’s no need to suffer in silence – share how you’re feeling, ask how someone is doing and listen for the answer. Be willing to ask for help when you need it and know that we are all in this together. #WMHD”
Harry and mental health
The Duke of Sussex is a long-time advocate of projects and initiatives aimed at tackling mental health.
As well as speaking up for sufferers and taking time out of his schedule to hear their stories, he has famously opened his heart about his own mental health struggles over the past two decades.
Earlier this week, Harry starred in a British National Health Service (NHS) campaign advert alongside brother Prince William, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle.
The Cambridges and Sussexes narrate the three-minute video themselves, which encourages people on how to tackle various mental wellbeing issues such as poor sleep, stress and low mood.
The video supports the Every Mind Matters initiative and was released earlier in the build-up to World Mental Health Day.
