This is unexpected news, but extremely important.
The Royal Family went live on Facebook and showed Lady Gaga and Prince William discussing the mental illness stigma. Watch it below:
As someone who struggles with anxiety and depression and looks up to celebrities, this was surreal. Prince William asked Lady Gaga about her struggle with mental illness and it was all so real and relatable. She spoke about waking up tired and sad every morning, the confusion as to why you would feel that way. They also talked about how far we've come with raising awareness and potentially planned for for them to meet when she's in the UK to further make a difference. Of course, they had to mention the Royal Foundation London Marathon 2017 campaign called Heads Together. You can learn more here.
My hopes are that more celebrities will come out with their mental health struggles (I feel everyone goes through something at some point in there life), and that there will be more outlets for those struggling to turn to for help. What did you think of this video?
