Thanks for the link Rudolph!! Going to send it to my Niece, as her little guy is starting his 2nd week of School & it's not a bad thing to keep in mind about. Even at the age Parker's at.

"feelings too big to manage on our own" is a lovely way to phrase it.

It was nice to see Catherine active again this week - she really shines at the mental health events and other events where children and young people are involved. You can tell this is a topic that she cares about very deeply and I'm really glad that she is using her royal position to make a difference. Mental health and the stigma behind it is a very important issue, especially here in the UK as we as a nation are generally quite reserved when it comes to sharing our feelings and experiences; so it's great to have someone like Catherine encourage people to speak out (who, as a former victim of bullying herself, can probably relate to the effects bullying - as one example - can have on mental health). As someone who is still recovering from mental health issues of their own, I'm quite tired of the stigma behind mental health and how some like to write it off as a "private matter". I firmly believe that if more people were encouraged to speak about their experiences with mental health and their current positions with mental health, there would be less people suffering from it.

You’re so right, Catherine does shine at these mental health events but let me say HereditaryPrincess you too shine. You shine right here on this thread reaching people and illuminating something so important that others can’t express. You are powerful!

That made me smile - thank you!
Unfortunately therapy is also quite hard to get hold of here in the UK, and people can be on the waiting lists to see therapists for years, particularly in institutions like schools and offices. I have a friend who also suffers from depression and he was on the waiting list for his therapist for about 3 years until he could finally get appointments. Therapy should be available for everyone everywhere, but especially those who need it the most. There have been many stories in the UK media of people not being able to be seen by therapists in time at hospitals, sadly leading them to end their own lives because they did not get the support they deserved.

Not to throw the thread off on a tangent but I do have a question. How available are the 12 step programs in the UK. Here in the States there is a 12 step program for just about anything under the sun from alcoholism and drug dependency to overeating and emotions.

Until you stated that seeing a therapist in the UK isn't an easy thing to do, I was under the impression that therapists and self help programs like AA, NA, OA and EA were as widespread as they are in the States.

There are a number of AA and similar groups in the UK certainly. But they don't hold the same level as the do say in the US.

The many groups that have copied Alcoholics Anonymous - BBC News

Treatment facilities don't seem to recommend out patients become involved in these programs as often in the US.

The issue is these are self-help groups. there is no actual therapy. For some people they may help, but as a stand alone solution not so much. The whole 'anonymity' leads to the furthering of the 'stigma of alcoholism'. Many people would rather hide away in a meeting then admit they need help. Its getting people past that stigma, and realize seeking help is not weakness, and getting them into counselling which is the goal of groups like this.

Thanks for the feedback, Countessmeout.

All the more reason for me now to think that the work the Cambridges and Harry are doing to promote mental health is a necessity. In all walks of life and it all different kinds of situations, mental therapy and guidance is a big necessity that should be more readily available to all. Wherever one can find it. The important thing is to actually find it and have the courage to look for it.

The biggest thing to overcome, I think, is in that one little word that you've mentioned. Stigma. A mental health issue happens to all of us from one time to another and like a cut needing stitches, so do these issues need to be taken care of. The important thing to remember is that no one is alone dealing with things and the last thing any issues would be is a "black mark" or a "disgrace" or a "stigma".
