Mental health problems are so wide spread, yet we rarely talk openly or candidly about them. In the ultimate test of mind over matter, ten unlikely runners living with or affected by mental health issues, will train for the London Marathon, one of the world’s most famous endurance races. The young Royals; Prince William, Prince Harry and Kate, The Duchess of Cambridge, who want to raise awareness for mental health issues and get people to talk openly about mental health, will help encourage the runners during their six month training by meeting up with them. Alongside the Royals is presenter, Nick Knowles, who teams up with trainers and nutritionists, in a personal mission to get all ten runners across the finish line.
