According to PEOPLE Meghan and Harry have been very hands on and have been working with the parents involved in next week's event behind the scenes, some of whom have experienced tragic loss connected to their child’s social media use.
A source told the publication: "The families have been engaged with The Archewell Foundation for the past year, bolstering community and driving towards solutions. Together, they are united in their mission to share personal experiences, data, and research to ensure the same does not happen to other families."
The event is part of Project Healthy Minds’ second annual World Mental Health Day Festival which has been a long-time partner of Meghan and Harry's Archewell Foundation.
Their appearance comes months after Harry and Meghan claimed to have been in a "near catastrophic car chase" in New York. In May, they released a statement following a public event at Ms Foundation for Women’s 50th-anniversary gala event, in which they were joined by Meghan's mum Doria Ragland.
In a statement, the prince's spokesperson said a "relentless pursuit" of them by paparazzi lasted more than two hours by half a dozen vehicles. They added it resulted in near collisions with other drivers on the road, pedestrians and police officers.
The couple were said to have been "extremely upset and shaken" by the alleged incident. At the same time, Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, 66, was said to have been particularly "terrified" by the ordeal.
