The former Royal Green Jacket said of his time in the armed forces: "We have to bear in mind, I was told this: "Grab a man suit and suck it up".
Harry, who spent 10 years in the military, including two tours of Afghanistan, joined forces with Britain's Defence Secretary Michael Fallon to promote a new initiative to offer mental health support to those in the armed forces, their families and veterans. "I learned about the true meaning of service, duty, resilience and dedication", said Harry, who was known as Capt. Wales.
He said: "Quite simply, these men and women are prized assets which need to be continually invested in. We surely have to think of them as high-performance athletes, carrying all their kit, equipment and a rifle", he continued.
Just over half (51 percent) of those asked said it was now easy to speak about mental health.
The royal explained that the new initiative is "providing tools and information that will help everyone in the defense community to get ahead of some of these problems before they start".
It's after figures showed the proportion of personnel asking for mental health care has nearly doubled in the last ten years.
The investment will be used to establish a new start-up for digital mental health innovations.

The partnership is the latest in a series of royal efforts to promote greater understanding and openness around mental health through the work of the Foundation's Heads Together campaign, launched in May previous year. "If you can't even have a conversation with your loved ones, there's no way you're going to go to HR at work".
