Prince William Looks At Men’s Mental Health In BBC Documentary ‘Football, Prince William And Our Mental Health’

Prince William is set to feature in an upcoming documentary about soccer and mental health.

“Football, Prince William and Our Mental Health” will see William meet soccer stars such as Chelsea manager Frank Lampard and England defender Tyrone Mings.

The doc, which follows William over the course of a year as he tackles “men’s mental health through the prism of football,” will air on BBC One in the U.K. as part of Mental Health Awareness Week in May.

“You can’t be ashamed of your mental health, you’ve got to be able to look it in the eye and go deal with it, here we go,” the Duke of Cambridge says in the trailer.

In another part, William narrates, “It’s about feeling confident enough to say things aren’t great. It’s OK to not be OK.”

The documentary comes as part of the royal’s Heads Up initiative from their Head Together Campaign. The show will feature stories from men affected by mental health, as William discusses mental health with footballers and the community.

BBC director-general Tony Hall said, according to Deadline: “Mental health is important — and during this pandemic more important than ever.

“Many people may be struggling alone, they may be worried about maintaining their own well-being or want to better equip themselves to help loved ones.

“That’s why bringing mental health issues out into the open is so important. Our programs aim to do just that.”

William’s latest project comes after he spoke to soccer stars about mental health for “A Royal Team Talk” last year. He launched his Heads Up campaign last May.
