Princes William and Harry may have separated their royal households, but that doesn't mean the Sussexes and the Cambridges are finished working together. The "Fab Four," as Will, Kate, Harry, and Meghan have come to be known, are reuniting on a new mental health initiative this week.

The royal couples are supporting Every Mind Matters, a new partnership from Public Health England and the NHS, and a tool which has been described as "a new way of empowering people to manage and improve their mental health."

"Every Mind Matters will benefit us all with an accessible tool to help manage our wellbeing at the click of a button," explains Britain's Health Secretary Matt Hancock. "It will offer vital support to those living with a mental health condition and give each of us valuable and personalized tips on how to better cope with life’s daily struggles while contributing to tackling the stigma that can still surround mental health."

William, Kate, Meghan, and Harry are voicing a film about the project, which was written by Richard Curtis and directed by Rankin.

The trailer for the film (above) starts with narration by the Duke of Cambridge: "Everyone knows that feeling when life gets on top of us."

Then Prince Harry joins in. "We feel stressed, low, anxious or have trouble sleeping," he says. "We think there's nothing that can be done, nothing we can do about it."

"But now, there's a new way to help turn things around," adds the Duchess of Sussex. "Every Mind Matters will show you simple ways to look after your mental health."

And finally, Kate says, "It will get you started with a free online plan designed to help you deal with stress, boost your mood, improve your sleep, and feel more in control."

The royals are joined in the clip by notable figures, who have made a point to speak out about mental health issues in the past, including Glenn Close and Gillian Anderson, among others.

The full film is scheduled to premiere today in the U.K. At this point, it's unclear if it will become available to watch in the U.S. and in other countries.
