Prince William, Kate Middleton and Prince Harry are launching a film series that encourages people to talk about about their mental health. The series, called #oktosay, showcases real people in the moment they first opened up to someone about their mental health struggles.
The project is a part of their work with Heads Together, a royal campaign that fights to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health and supports young people, the homeless and veterans, who are struggling with their psychological well being.
In one clip, model Adwoa Aboah and her mother discuss her attempted suicide and how she coped with depression and bipolar disorder.
