Prince Harry Talks About Therapy and Mental Health
Prince Harry was only 12 years old when his mother, Princess Diana, died tragically.
Prince Harry, along with his brother, Prince William, and sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, is behind the mental-health campaign Heads Together,, which aims to remove the stigma around discussing mental health.
In the past three years, as he has pursued therapy, Harry has transformed his public persona, from party boy to responsible royal.
It was only after going to therapy that he was able to deal with his grief.
In a new interview with The Telegraph’s Bryony Gordon on her podcast Mad World, Harry shared with Gordon that it took him 20 years to confront his feelings about his mother’s sudden death.
