Prince Harry Announces Mental Health Partnership With Armed Forces In Emotional Speech

Harry is launching a new partnership created to improve the mental health of current and former Armed Forces personnel by rolling out support to veterans and those still serving across the three services.

"My 10 years in the army taught me a great deal".

Harry is also the creator and founder of the Invictus Games, a multinational sporting event for wounded, sick or disabled military personnel.

Calling service men and women "prized assets", who need to be "invested in", Harry went on to note, "Crucially, fighting fitness is not just about physical fitness. We surely have to think of them as high-performance athletes, carrying all their kit, equipment and a rifle", he continued.

Protecting the United Kingdom from Cyber Attacks is just as important as fighting terrorism, according to the Director of Intelligence Agency GCHQ.

MENTAL health problems are among the most prevalent yet least recognised of all illnesses in our society, which makes the efforts of younger members of the Royal Family to highlight them especially praiseworthy and important. "It is just as much about mental fitness too", Harry said.

If such advocacy is vital in raising the profile of mental health problems, so are practical measures, and the investment of £2m by the foundation set up by the Royals is another welcome step in signposting help for those in need of it. "The military has faced the challenge of dealing with things like post-traumatic stress, anxiety and depression".

"For too long, acknowledging emotion or challenging thoughts was seen as counterproductive to the fundamental characteristics of the Armed Forces".

"Our soldiers, sailors and airmen are the best in the world but we will only maintain that if we are as serious about improving mental health as we are our combat skills and cutting-edge technology", Fallon said.
