May officially marks ‘Mental Health Awareness Month’ and there’s no better time to launch a series exploring mental health and emotional well-being.
The television event is a highly anticipated multi-part documentary series from co-creators and executive producers Oprah Winfrey and Prince Harry, who join forces once again following the tell-all interview that also featured Meghan Markle. The series, titled The Me You Can’t See, will spark the global conversation on mental health and will feature illuminating stories that will lift the current state of well-being.
Now more than ever, there is an immediate need to replace the shame surrounding mental health with wisdom, compassion, and honesty,” said Oprah Winfrey.
The Duke of Sussex also said, “We are born into different lives, brought up in different environments, and as a result are exposed to different experiences. But our shared experience is that we are all human. The majority of us carry some form of unresolved trauma, loss, or grief, which feels—and is—very personal. Yet the last year has shown us that we are all in this together, and my hope is that this series will show there is power in vulnerability, connection in empathy, and strength in honesty.”
The series is set to also see an A-list line-up of participants including Lady Gaga, Glenn Close, San Antonio Spurs’ DeMar DeRozan, Phoenix Suns’ Langston Galloway (formerly of the Detroit Pistons), Mental Health Advocate and Speaker Zak Williams, Olympic Boxer Virginia “Ginny” Fuchs, Celebrity Chef Rashad Armstead, and more.
The Me You Can’t See will premiere May 21 on Apple TV+.
