Ed#538 Prince Harry


Our cover star Prince Harry is a man on a mission to raise awareness about mental health. He has opened up about his own long journey to recovery after almost two decades of battling grief following the loss of his mother. He hopes that by speaking out, he will encourage others to feel comfortable about sharing their struggles, and help bust the stigma and silence that still exists around mental health. For Men's Health Week (12-18 June), we've also spoken with two different men about their battles with mental health: Big Issue vendor Ben G from Brisbane and TV host Osher Günsberg.
