Royals give biggest grant ever to digital mental health scheme

The former army captain and Sir Michael Fallon will make the case that mental fitness is as important as physical fitness when it comes fighting wars

He said: "Quite simply, these men and women are prized assets which need to be continually invested in".

The joint initiative between the MoD and the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry comes days after the Foundation announced a £2 million investment in a start-up company providing digital support to youngsters anxious about their mental health.

Experts at the market research firm YouGov, who tracked 14,000 individuals and experts from Heads Together's eight charity partners, note that Harry's admission that he too struggled with his own mental health after the 1997 death of his mother, the late Princess Diana, has encouraged other men to seek help and start a conversation.

Prince William, Kate Middleton and Prince Harry have given $2.7 million (£2 million) to back a new digital initiative that will help improve people's mental health.

Harry, 33, who spent 10 years in the Army and served twice in Afghanistan, said to stay fighting fit military personnel needed to be treated like top athletes who are advised by sports scientists and psychologists to focus mentally on their goals and wellbeing.

The organization that the grant will establish aims to create "digital solutions for mental health", according to the Heads Together foundation.

The funds, which come from their Royal Foundation, will go towards "a start-up for digital mental health innovation" to give the public access to help for mental health problems. Because a national study published today, reveals that when the campaign reached its height in May, the number of people talking about mental health dramatically increased.

Of those surveyed, 68 percent of people would now speak to a family member, 64 percent to a friend and 25 percent to a doctor. However, on the statistic that three quarters of suicides in the United Kingdom are men, he stated: "That's still a worrying statistic though, it really is".

The trio are all big advocates in wanting people to know it is #oktosay - through their mental health initiative Heads Together, Lady Gaga also jumped on board, Face timing The Duke and discussing how opening up and having conversations about mental health is vital to ending the stigma that still surrounds these issues.

"When we work together, we are greater than the sum of our parts".

"But I think it all has to start at home".

"You'd struggle to find a parent out there who wouldn't want the well-being of their child to be taken care of at school", Prince William said Friday at Imperial College in London.
