A Visit to Help For Heroes At Tedworth House For Prince Harry
Since he left the military in June 2015, the main focus of Prince Harry’s charity work has been on the mental health of returned servicemen and women. Today’s engagement – a visit to one of Help for Heroes’s Recovery Centres, Tedworth House, on the border of Wiltshire and Hampshire.
The Prince spent time speaking with former service personnel who have received support through the Help for Heroes Hidden Wounds program, which provides mental health assessments and strategies for soldiers and members of their families from psychological wellbeing practitioners.
“Getting back your mental as well as your physical fitness is a really important thing. One of the biggest struggles is accepting that there is a problem in the first place,” Prince Harry said as he spoke to the veterans, a number of whom have or are suffering from PTSD.
Harry also saw some of the other programs offered at Tedworth House, including the Iron Age Round House build and the Hero Garden. Both projects are designed to get people outside while they work whilst also providing them with a “space for quiet reflection”.Filed under The United Kingdom
