Prince Harry will pay a visit to Heroes Recovery Centre, Tedworth House, on 23 January, it has been announced.
The former British Army Captain will be in South West England to learn more about the range of support which Help for Heroes Hidden Wounds provides in the field of military mental health, a cause he has been championing. The trip falls within a wider campaign he is currently spearheading, along with Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, to end the stigma surrounding mental health issues.
During his visit, the Prince will see programmes designed to promote wellbeing at the centre, before taking a tour around the garden where beneficiaries come to communicate and work in a quiet atmosphere. He is also expected to talk to a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner to learn what happens when people in need of psychological support get in touch.
Prince Harry will have a chat with some Help for Heroes beneficiaries, which will be an important chance for him to listen to their stories and hear how the programmes has made a difference in their life.
Based on the Wiltshire/Hampshire border, Tedworth House provides free and crucial support to both serving and veteran members of the Armed Forces who have been injured or become sick. It is one of four Recovery Centres run by Help for Heroes across the country. The three other centres are based in Catterick, Colchester and Plymouth.
Tedworth House has over 50 bedrooms and four family suites, with a range of specialist rooms for adaptive sports, education courses, relaxation and socialising.
This is not the first visit His Royal Highness makes to Tidworth. He was there to open the centre back in 2013 and returned a year later to mark the beginning of selection process for the Invictus Games, during which he described the servicemen and women as ”fighters by nature”.
