Britain's Prince Harry and U.S. chat show queen Oprah Winfrey will premiere their television documentary series on mental health issues later this month. The series will also have singer Lady Gaga and actress Glenn contributing.
"The Me You Can't See" series, co-created and produced by Harry and Winfrey, will feature stories from high-profile guests and others across the world about mental health and emotional well-being issues, Apple TV+, the streaming service which will air the programmes from May 21.
Oprah said that the series' primary aim is to spark a global conversation and replace the shame surrounding mental health with wisdom and compassion.
"The majority of us carry some form of unresolved trauma, loss, or grief, which feels - and is - very personal".Harry, Queen Elizabeth's grandson, said in a statement." "Yet the last year has shown us that we are all in this together, and my hope is that this series will show there is power in vulnerability, connection in empathy, and strength in honesty".
Harry has publicly spoken of his mental health battles and is dealing with the grief of his mother, Princess Diana, who was killed in a car crash in Paris in 1997 when he was just 12. In March 2021, he was named the first chief impact officer of BetterUp Inc, a service that provides employee coaching and mental health assistance.
The T.V. series is one of the first ventures by Harry since he and his wife Meghan stepped down from official royal duties and moved to California to forge new independent careers. The couple have also signed deals to deliver programming for Netflix and produce and host Spotify podcasts. Among those participating will also be basketball players DeMar DeRozan from the San Antonio Spurs and Langston Galloway from the Phoenix Suns.
