There's a lot of "Hot Issue" topics flying about these days - whether it be the current political situation, the economic climate, human rights or the horrific damage we are doing to our world just by existing and being ignorant about it. There is one hot issue however that for me, personally, trumps every other out there... and that is the issue of our own Mental Health.

ANYWAY, not only I am not the only one who cares about mental health, but as it turns out, literally two of my favorite celebrities on the entire planet are now going to be advocating for it too. Yep, that's right folks, both Prince Harry and Oprah Winfrey have reportedly confirmed that they will be collaborating with each other in order to produce a series of mental health documentaries as part of a recently announced deal with Apple TV.

Prince Harry AND Oprah Winfrey. I'll just give you a second so that the greatness of this collaboration can truly sink in.

"inspiring viewers to have an honest conversation about the challenges each of us faces, and how to equip ourselves with the tools to not simply survive, but to thrive."

This glorious news was recently confirmed during a post which appeared on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's official Instagram account. A statement revealed the UK's cheeky red-haired Prince Harry and the USA's very own global treasure Oprah had in fact been developing this series for "several months".

Prince Harry himself is no stranger to talking about mental health - especially in the more recent years. The young prince has been very open about how much he struggled after his mother's untimely, tragic death, and how he wished that he had spoken up more about it to others when he was struggling to deal with it himself.

Prince Harry has also been listening to youth ambassadors during a visit on April 3rd to the YMCA in South Ealing in order to learn more about the incredible work they do surrounding mental health and to see just how well they are providing support to so many young people in that area.

"Delighted to be partnering with you. Hope we shed a lot of Light. And change some lives!"

This high-profile (and not to mention, AMAZING) partnership is being described as a continuation of Prince Harry's long-standing commitment to raising awareness on the stigmas that continue to surround mental health. As previously mentioned above, he has also spoken very recently about how it directly affected him in his own life too.

“You must not silently suffer. You are all in this together and if I may speak personally we are all in this together, because asking for help was one of the best decisions that I ever made."

Not to mention the fact that, in case you weren't already aware, it's actually Prince Harry - alongside his older brother Prince William - who are the driving forces behind Heads Together too, which is, of course, a mental health initiative they both launched back in 2017.

Well, folks what do you think about that then!? Are you as freakin' excited about the series as I am? I mean, it's Prince Harry and FREAKING OPRAH for sheesh's sake... and I will 100% be watching it the moment it airs. Don't forget to share this with your friends and family in order to spread the exciting news! AAx
