Prince Harry speaks out about the stigma of Mental Health, specifically relating to war veterans. Research suggests that 10-18% of troops serving in Afghanistan and Iraq are likely to have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) upon their return. Estimates of depression in returning troops ranges from 3-25% and of the Veterans using VA services, 48% have been diagnosed with a mental health problem.
Prince Harry said, “Mental Health problems don’t need to be a ticking time bomb.” He talks about the need to keep mental health at the forefront of our problems; it just simply needs to be talked about.
