Prince Harry backs mental health campaign

By Tony Jones

Prince Harry praised people who ask for help as showing "strength" as he urged ambulance workers to lead the nation in opening up about mental health problems.

During a morning visit to the London Ambulance Service's headquarters yesterday, Prince Harry also told staff he understood their ongoing concerns for patients, having served as an Apache attack helicopter pilot in Afghanistan, where his work brought him into contact with wounded military personnel.

Harry's visit helped launch Time To Talk Day, which is held on the first Thursday in February with the aim of breaking the silence around mental health problems.

Time To Talk Day is run by the outreach organisation Time To Change.

It aims to change the national conversation around mental health to a positive one.
