Transcript for Royal 'Fab Four' launch new project together
And now to the big initiative from the fab four, new parents Harry and Meghan teaming up with will and Kate to try to help people in crisis and linsey Davis is in London with all of those details. Good morning, linsey. Reporter: Good morning, Amy. You know, they just had a baby four days ago but of course the work of a royal continues and while the duke and duchess of Sussex were unable to attend, will and Kate were on hand for the big announcement, the young Royals foundation making its biggest investment ever, taking on mental health. This morning, the fab four's banding together for mental health. The young Royals announcing a new phone messaging service called shout to help those struggling with mental health issues. Shout is a new text line that supports people who need advice in a tough moment. It operates 24/7 and connects people to trained volunteers who provide help at a time when it is most needed. Enabling them to move from crisis to calm and to find longer-term support. Reporter: Prince William appears in the video about the initiative. Texting is private and silent. It opens up a whole new way to find help. It provides instant support. You can have a conversation anywhere at any time. At school, at home, on the bus, anywhere. I am incredibly excited to be launching this service knowing it has the potential to reach thousands of vulnerable people every day. I really want to be able to do something to help and a big part of what they bring is alleviating the stigma around talking about the issue. We wanted to do our bit to make it easier for people to start to get the help they need. And crucially we wanted to back new innovative ways for people to have conversations wherever they are at whatever time they need someone to talk to. Reporter: The princes have both widelien praised for being open about their own struggle with their mental health in the wake of the death of their mother. They've been meeting with volunteers along with duchesses Kate and Meghan. Over the last few months shout has started working quietly behind the scenes, Harry, Meghan, Catherine and I have been able to see it working up close and are very excited for its future. Reporter: During the trial there were 60,000 text conversations, mostly people under the age of 25 years old wanting to talk about suicide, anxiety and depression. This is a free service and clearly a much needed service, Yeah, linsey, thanks very that's so great. That's the best way to reach young people. That's where they live. Doing great work there.
