Prince Harry encourages putting mental health ahead of work


In a new interview with “Fast Company,” published Monday, Dec. 6, Prince Harry addressed the issue of mental health and the increasing number of resignations during the coronavirus pandemic.

In March 2020, Prince Harry left his royal duties with wife Meghan Markle. Since his departure, the Duke of Sussex has accepted a position as a manager at BetterUp, an American coaching and mental health start-up. It is in this new role that he spoke, Monday, December 6, to the magazine “Fast Company”. Prince Harry first stressed the importance of being interested in mental health. We are only at the beginning of the awakening of mental health,” said the son of Prince Charles. This work has never been more important because people are finally paying attention, and a big part of that mission is to raise awareness and continue to open up the debate.”

Resignation isn’t always bad news

Asked about the increase in resignations during the coronavirus pandemic, the Duke of Sussex explained that it’s not always a bad thing, especially if it’s for the sake of one’s sanity and one is able to do so. He encourages people to quit their jobs if they don’t feel good about themselves. In fact, it’s a sign that with self-awareness comes the need for change,” said Prince Harry. Many people around the world have been stuck in jobs that didn’t bring them joy, and now they are putting their mental health and happiness first. That’s something to be celebrated.”

Mental health seems to be a topic that particularly resonates with the royals. In an episode of the podcast “Prince William: Time to Walk,” which aired Sunday, Dec. 5, Elizabeth II’s grandson revealed himself. He then said that he had suffered from depression following a traumatic event in 2017, which had marked him while he was a helicopter pilot for the air ambulance service. An experience that led him to prioritize mental health.
