There are very few trailers that really make me cry, but this one strikes a cord. I think that mental health is so important to talk about and I am adamant that people understand that. And so yes, I will be talking about mental health for the rest of my life.
I also will be logging into my Apple TV+ subscription this week and watching The Me You Can’t See from Oprah and Prince Harry. I had already planned on it, but this trailer solidified that choice for me.
“Now more than ever, there is an immediate need to replace the shame surrounding mental health with wisdom, compassion and honesty,” said Oprah Winfrey. “Our series aims to spark that global conversation.”
“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,” said Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex. “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.”
Also participating in the event are, songwriter and actress Lady Gaga; chef Rashad Armstead; NBA’s San Antonio Spurs’ DeMar DeRozan and Phoenix Suns’ Langston Galloway; actress and producer Glenn Close; 2021 Olympic Boxer Virginia “Ginny” Fuchs; and mental health advocate and speaker Zak Williams.
