Prince Harry Mental Health Discussion

  • It may be difficult to open up about one's mental health, but Prince Harry is urging young Singaporeans to speak up about it "to be happy and healthy for the rest of your life".

    Britain's prince, who was in town for a two-day visit, sat down with six young Singaporeans to throw a light on this issue.

    "Mental health, for some reason, people go 'eurgh'," said Prince Harry, but "you have to talk about your mental health in order to be mentally fit".

    "I don't know if the older generation would agree with us but I think with social media, the Internet, and everything else, a lot of false realities are thrown down young people's throats," he added.

    The topic of mental health is something Prince Harry has been keen on advocating. Earlier this year, the prince, together with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, launched the Heads Together campaign to end the stigma around mental health.

    During his visit to Singapore, he sat down with six youth mentors who shared experiences and hopes with each other relating to youth mental health.
