Harry and Meghan met recently with a group of teens from AHA! Santa Barbara, a nonprofit organization that describes itself on its website as working to equip "teenagers, educators, and parents with social and emotional intelligence to dismantle apathy, prevent despair, and interrupt hate-based behavior."
The nonprofit is located close to Montecito, where the Sussexes now live with their two children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.
Harry and Meghan met with the teens, ages 14 to 18, for one hour to discuss their "experiences with social media and societal pressures, and how it affects their mental well-being," according to the couple's Archewell Foundation.
The photos shared by the foundation mark the first time Harry and Meghan have been seen in an official appearance since Harry traveled to the United Kingdom for the coronation of his father, King Charles III.
Harry attended the coronation alone, with Meghan and their two children staying behind in California. The date of the coronation, May 6, was also Archie's fourth birthday.
Since stepping down from their senior royals roles three years ago, Harry and Meghan have charted their own path in the United States, launching Archewell, which includes their charitable foundation as well as their production and audio companies.
The Sussexes have also each been vocal about their own struggles with mental health.
Meghan has opened up about suicidal thoughts she said she had during her time in the royal family.
The Archewell Foundation says on its website that the issue of mental health "underpins all our work."
"AWF holds a core belief that mental health is of the utmost importance, and underpins all of our work," the foundation states. "We are regularly meeting with young people, parents, and professionals to understand the challenges they may be facing while working together to drive towards long-term solutions on- and offline."
