Joining Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, the Duke of Sussex helped launch Peak Fortem, an online resource for first responders. The programme intends to help workers work through stress and trauma, and is based off of a UK model. Harry and his brother Prince William have been outspoken on mental health, with the Sussex and Cambridge royals both committing to improving conversations around the subject.
Harry issued a statement in support of the new programme, and referenced his own experience in the military.
He said: “Our mental fitness is one and the same as our physical fitness.
“Serving in the military, I saw first hand how critical it is to train your mind as a muscle- not only to endure challenges and stresses but to excel, grow and build resilience in all aspects of life.
“Peak Fortem is the product of teamwork, dedication and a commitment to supporting and strengthening communities of all kinds - values upheld by Australia’s first responders.”Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
