Royals give biggest grant ever to digital mental health scheme

11 October, 2017, 00:22 | Author: Laverne Higgins

Talking about the members of the armed forces, Prince Harry said, "Quite simply, these men and women are prized assets which need to be continually invested in. It is just as much about mental fitness too", Harry said.

Speaking during a St James's Palace reception staged to mark World Mental Health Day and thank those involved in the campaign, Harry said they would be taking their initiative further.

With the advice and support of its Heads Together partner charities, The Royal Foundation will also be investing in programmes to support better conversations on mental health in schools, workplaces, and within the defence community.

The Prince, who was praised by the Defence Secretary for his role in supporting injured troops through the Invictus Games and other initiatives, added: "During my time in the Army, I saw how important physical conditioning was and how we always warmed up before every run or loaded march to reduce the risk of injury".

Prince Harry has hailed a new partnership between his Royal Foundation and the Ministry of Defence which aims to place "mental fitness" at the heart of the armed forces' training and support.

"My 10 years in the Army taught me a great deal". Crucially, fighting fitness is not just about physical fitness.

"It was Catherine who first realised that all three of us were working on mental health in our individual areas of focus".

Time, live streaming and where to watch on TV
In the last U-17 World Cup in 2015 we lost our first game and we went to the second game against England totally nervous. Praising his players, the coach said, "It (Conceding the goal early) was bad for us for sure".


The investment will be used to establish a new start-up for digital mental health innovations.

It also attracted high-profile support from the likes of Lady Gaga, Professor Green, Ruby Wax, Alastair Campbell and Theresa May. Because a national study published today, reveals that when the campaign reached its height in May, the number of people talking about mental health dramatically increased.

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".

"At the beginning, we were trying to understand why at home people weren't sharing some of their problems".

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 past year. But I think it all starts at home. "If you can't even have a conversation with your loved ones, there's no way you're going to go to HR at work".

Since Harry left the military, he has made campaigning over mental health issues and the fate of veterans two of his priorities.
