The office also reveals the program will feature multi-part documentaries from experts explaining mental illnesses, honest conversations about the experiences most mental health patients endure, as well as providing a support system for sufferers to help them understand that they’re not alone.

According to the Duke of Sussex, he truly believes having good mental health is the key to build strong and powerful leadership and drive communities to become productive and efficient.

Prince Harry reiterated that having a mental illness can be debilitating on so many levels even though people who have it don’t show physical symptoms. The overproduction of certain hormones including cortisol can seriously inhibit brain’s ability to assimilate information and think logically.

If you have a mental illness, you’ll have a hard time knowing the difference between right and wrong which can lead to a serious, and sometimes irreversible, lapse of judgement.

The Hope

Prince Harry and Oprah hope that the show will create a positive impact especially on those who struggle with mental health.

The two famous public figures want to share inspiring stories from people who wound up in a dark place but managed to break free from their inner demons. The show will also allow us to understand people who suffer from such illnesses and extend our empathy and compassion towards them.

The Royal fans can also learn about the mental health struggles Prince Harry endured during his childhood days, especially after his mother’s death which affected him very deeply. The Duke will also share how he recovered from his illness to become a strong and formidable man and what the rest of us can learn from him.
