Both Prince Harry and Ed Sheeran want to ensure that not just today but every day, you look after yourself, your friends and those around you. There’s no need to suffer in silence - share how you’re feeling, ask how someone is doing and listen for the answer. Be willing to ask for help when you need it and know that we are all in this together. #WMHD Check out the accounts below for more resources and support: @Heads_Together @Calmzone @MentalHealthFoundation @CharityNoPanic @SamaritansCharity @YoungMindsUK @GiveUsAShoutInsta @Childline_official @LetsTalkAboutMentalHealth @Jedfoundation @Pandas_UK @Charitysane @MindCharity @TimeToChangeCampaign @RethinkMentalIllness @MentalHealthMates @ActionHappiness @MHFAEngland @DitchTheLabel @TheBlurtFoundation
The video than takes us to Prince Harry who greets him with a "Hi, mate. It’s like looking in the mirror’’ welcome. Talking about the need to talk about mental health, Ed says the subject is one he’s ‘passionate about’ and the pair come up with the idea of writing a song about the issue to help raise awareness.
"People just don't understand what it's like for people like us - with the jokes and the snide comments. I think it's time we stood up and say 'we are ginger, and we are going to fight'" to which Harry replies
"This is slightly awkward. There may have been a miscommunication - this is about World Mental Health Day?"
With the confusion being cleared, the focus turns to Ed hastily deleting the title of his "Gingers Unite" campaign from his computer.
So important, that Prince Harry and @edsheeran make an effort to ensure that not just today but every day, you look after yourself, your friends and those around you.

The clip then finishes with the duke urging viewers to reach out to friends and family for World Mental Health Day.
