Everyone has a story, a testimonial or simply put, an experience that put them in the trajectory that they are in today. No one is alone. I’m thankful to capture moments like these. I’m thankful for the people who hear my story and also oblige to share a bit of their story with me. A piece of advice to you: never be afraid to share your story, you’d be surprised with how many people share a common story with you.
If you want to be featured as a future TRANSPARENT, email email@example.com and we can set up a time for a 5 minute interview on how transparency affects you and your life along with answering some customized interview questions.
According to People magazine, Prince Harry and Oprah Winfrey have done it again! They have a docuseries together, ‘The Me You Can’t See: A Path Forward’, that has a primary focus on mental health. They have a whole docuseries that interview and encourage people to share their own mental health stories.
On it’s May 21st, the docuseries quickly became the number #1 watched program worldwide on AppleTV, the platform that is hosting the docuseries. The main purpose of the co-created series were to ‘lift the veil’ on mental health and wellbeing.
On Friday May 28th, A Path Forward, is premiering a free town hall by AppleTV, where they talk with advisors and discuss with participants of the docuseries to bring a dialogue about mental health and where to go from there. I look forward to watching the Town Hall and hearing further insight on the docuseries.
My opinion of all this is JOB WELL DONE Prince Harry. To me, Prince Harry has not been afraid to talk about mental health for some time and it’s important he continues his mission on mental health as he, his wife and even his mother have expressed mental health despite being a Royal. Oprah Winfrey can give that platform based off of her status, but I mainly give this credit to Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex. From his ‘Heads Together Campaign’ that he used to be apart of with his brother William and sister-in-law Kate Middleton, Prince Harry continues to be a HUGE advocate of mental health. I consider this endeavor a ‘famous’ Transparency is Beautiful, as my initial set up for my blog/website was based on mental health and the transparency behind it.
Just like I want to meet Kanye West someday, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are also on my list where I have a simple empathetic discussion with them, because, I too, can relate.
Congratulations Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex and Oprah Winfrey on this endeavor as we all fight together to de-stigmatize the topic of mental health.
