Prince William Talks Mental Health With Lady Gaga
As part of the Heads Together campaign to end the stigma surrounding mental health, a video was released today by Kensington Palace of the Duke of Cambridge’s video chat with pop star Lady Gaga.
The duo spoke about mental health and how important it is to encourage people from all walks of life to feel comfortable with talking to others about their mental health, for their own wellbeing.
“It’s the same as physical health. Everybody has mental health and we shouldn’t be ashamed of it. Even just having a conversation with a friend or family member can make such a difference,” Prince William said to Lady Gaga, who agreed, saying that “we need to let our generation and other generations know if you’re feeling not well in your mind you’re not alone and people you think would never have a problem do.”

A series of events centred around Heads Together will be undertaken by the Cambridges and Prince Harry this week, in the lead up to the London Marathon on April 23, which this year has Heads Together as its charity.
Prince William attended the premiere of the docu-film ‘Mind over Marathon’ that “follows a group of runners affected by mental health issues as they prepare for the London Marathon”. He posed with the runners ahead of watching the docu-film, which will air on BBC One on Thursday evening.Filed under The United Kingdom
