He added: "Our hope is that this series will be positive, enlightening and inclusive - sharing global stories of unparalleled human spirit fighting back from the darkest places, and the opportunity for us to understand ourselves and those around us better. I am incredibly proud to be working alongside Oprah on this vital series.”

The documentary will strengthen Harry's longstanding dedication to tackling mental health issues and raising awareness of mental illness.

In 2017, the prince launched "Heads Together," alongside his brother, Prince William and Kate Middleton. 

The campaign seeks and promotes discussions in regards to mental illnesses while battling the stigma surrounding mental health.
