- Prince Harry appeared in Peak State’s new campaign video promoting “mental fitness”
- The new organization was set up by two Invictus Games medalists, David Wiseman and Nathan Jones
- Twitter users had mixed opinions about Prince Harry’s latest efforts in promoting mental health
Prince Harry is promoting “mental fitness” in a new campaign video, which has received mixed responses on social media.
In the new mental health campaign video, which was shot last summer, the Duke of Sussex highlighted the importance of “mental fitness” and talked about Peak State, a new social enterprise set up by two Invictus Games medalists, David Wiseman and Nathan Jones. Prince Harry founded Invictus Games, an international sporting event for wounded, injured and sick veterans.
Peak State is a new organization that aims to encourage people to “to adopt mental fitness tools and techniques that were formerly considered purely for professional athletes and top executives.”
“Peak State is striving to build a global community that understands the importance of mental fitness and feels empowered to attain it,” Prince Harry said in the video obtained by Daily Mail.
Twitter users had mixed opinions about Prince Harry’s most recent effort to promote mental wellness. Some applauded the duke, while others claimed they don’t think Meghan Markle’s husband is an appropriate mental health advocate.
“He has problems with drink, drugs and anger issues he is jealous of his brother but he can advise others please stop it,” one person commented.
“Because he’s a qualified mental health professional now…,” another wrote along with an eyes emoji.
“Not the specimen of ‘mental fitness,’” a third user wrote.
Meanwhile, others acknowledged Prince Harry’s efforts in helping those struggling with their mental health and expressed their appreciation for him. However. some also criticized his comments about the royal family in his recent interviews and his docuseries, “The Me You Can’t See.”
“We love you Prince Harry. The impact of this is very huge. God bless you. Keeping winning,” one commented.
“Harry is looking happy & healthy. Like a weight is being lifted off his shoulders. Bless him, Meghan & their family,” another wrote of Prince Harry.
“Good cause talking about mental health. He just needs to stop talking about his family in a negative light. I’m sure they won’t like it if 30 years from now, their kids will criticize them on interviews,” a third netizen added.
Prince Harry’s new campaign video comes as he and Oprah Winfrey will join participants and experts to host a “town hall” discussion titled “The Me You Can’t See: A Path Forward.” The discussion airs Friday.
According to Prince Harry’s Archewell website, the program will also feature Glenn Close, mental health advocate and speaker Zak Williams and author and OnTrack NY peer counselor Ambar Martinez.
