He said he aims to broaden the conversation of mental wellness to accelerate change for a more compassionate, connected and positive society.

Speaking today, he said: ‘I truly believe that good mental health – mental fitness – is the key to powerful leadership, productive communities and a purpose-driven self.

‘It is a huge responsibility to get this right as we bring you the facts, the science and the awareness of a subject that is so relevant during these times.

‘Our hope is that this series will be positive, enlightening and inclusive – sharing global stories of unparalleled human spirit fighting back from the darkest places, and the opportunity for us to understand ourselves and those around us better.

‘I am incredibly proud to be working alongside Oprah on this vital series.
