The Duchess has previously discussed her mental health with Oprah Winfrey

Meghan Markle has revealed how her husband Prince Harry helped her at her 'worst point' by referring her to a mental health professional.

In the latest episode of her Spotify podcast 'Archetypes', the Duchess is joined by actress Constance Wu, writer Jenny Slate and Bollywood star Deepika Padukone to discuss how the label crazy is used to 'diminish women'.

On the podcast, the US actress also spoke about her own mental health, describing how Harry found her a referral to a mental health professional when she was at her "worst point."

"I mean, I think at my worst point, being finally connected to someone that, you know, my husband had found a referral for me to call. And I called this woman," Meghan said. "She didn't know I was even calling her. And she was checking out at the grocery store. I could hear the little beep, beep, and I was like, 'Hi,' and I'm introducing myself and can literally hear her going, 'Wait, sorry. I'm just. Who is this?' Um, and saying I need help. And she could hear the dire state that I was in."

Meghan continued, "But I think it's for all of us to be really honest about what it is that you need and to not be afraid to make peace with that, to ask for it."

The Duchess has previously discussed her mental health, including in her interview with Oprah Winfrey where she said 'at one point, i didn't want to be alive anymore'.

The most recent instalment of the podcast series also saw the Duchess lash out at author Jordan Peterson along with TV shows 'How I Met your Mother' and 'Scrubs' for their use of the word 'crazy' to describe female characters.

After issuing a 'trigger warning' at the start of the episode, Meghan explained 'I feel pretty strongly about this word … this label, crazy … the way that it's thrown around so casually and the damage it's wrought on society and women, frankly, everywhere—from relationships to families being shattered, reputations destroyed, and careers ruined.'
