Lady Gaga and Prince William Talk Mental Health

Pop music sensation, Lady Gaga, and Prince William talk about mental health in a Facetime conversation. Lady Gaga openly talked about her experience with PTSD in an open letter in December. Prince William asked her about it, and she explained how it is hard for her sometimes to having to go on stage when she is feeling sad and anxious. Prince William told her that it is important to have open conversations about mental health and fight negative stereotypes associated with it. This conversation can help raise awareness and convince people to step forward if they have mental health issues. One line from Prince William that is bound to reach people is “Mental health is the same as physical health. Everybody has mental health, and we shouldn’t be ashamed of it.”

It is phenomenal that two people with such power can use it to spread a message and make a positive impact. I can’t wait to see Lady Gaga and Prince William will do next to advocate mental health awareness!
