Meghan and Harry support mental health charities on Instagram



The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have shared a new and unique approach as to how they will be supporting the causes they care about on Instagram.

In a post shared on Sussex Royal yesterday, the couple explained that they will solely be following organisations that they wish to draw attention under an umbrella issue, which will change every month.

Each month we will honour this concept and change the accounts we solely follow based on a different theme or cause.

In the post, they announced that they would be kicking off by drawing attention to a number of organisations that promote mental health and wellbeing.

The couple who have both been very active in supporting these issues for years shared a collage of a number of images from charities that they wish to support.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month in the US and May 13-19 is Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK.

To pay tribute to all of the incredible work people across the globe are doing in this space, we are hoping to shine a light on several Instagram accounts that promote mental wellbeing, mental fitness, body positivity, self-care, and the importance of human connection to not just hear each other, but to listen.

The post included images from meditation app Headspace, charity Anxiety UK, Pandas Foundation (which helps with pre and post-natal mental illnesses), The Man Cave (which helps men with mental health issues) and the Crisis Text Line, as well as many others.

Harry, along with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, have made great efforts to bring mental health and wellbeing to the forefront of people’s minds with their charity Heads Together (which was tagged in the Sussex Royal post).

Meanwhile, Meghan touched on the issue many times on her former blog The Tig, so this is no doubt a cause very close to both of their hearts.
