What is Oprah and Prince Harry’s Experience with Mental Illness?
In 2017, Prince Harry spoke about how the death of his mother, Princess Diana, affected him in that he shut down all of his emotions for 20 years. He felt like the only way he could get through his mother’s death was to avoid thinking of his mother to prevent feelings of sadness. Prince Harry also helped launch the Heads Together Campaign to help change the conversation of mental health and raise funds for mental health services.
Winfrey’s experiences with mental illness comes from seeing people close to her hospitalized for severe suicidal depression, manic, and schizophrenic thoughts. Even though she knew about mental illness based on what she had read and guests that had been on her show with mental illness, it was not until mental illness hit close to home that she saw the seriousness of it. She would help her family members take care of themselves and that they continue taking their medication. Winfrey learned that mental illness is not something that you can talk someone out of and how complex the spectrum is since everyone experiences it differently. Both Winfrey and Prince Harry believe that this show will help break the stigma by getting people to talk about mental illness and for more to be done about it.
