The producers of The me You Can’t See partnered with 14 accredited experts and organizations to highlight different pathways to treatment. “Now more than ever, there is an immediate need to replace the shame surrounding mental health with wisdom, compassion and honesty. Our series aims to spark that global conversation,” explained Oprah. Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex, commented:
We are born into different lives, brought up in different environments, and as a result are exposed to different experiences. But our shared experience is that we are all human. The majority of us carry some form of unresolved trauma, loss or grief, which feels – and is – very personal. Yet the last year has shown us that we are all in this together, and my hope is that this series will show there is power in vulnerability, connection in empathy, and strength in honesty.
Both Oprah and Prince Harry served as executive producers on the series alongside Terry Wood and Catherine Cyr, Jon Kamen, and Dave Sirulnick. Alex Browne was the showrunner. Dawn Porter (Gideon’s Army, John Lewis: Good Trouble,) and Asif Kapadia (Amy) directed and were executive producers.
