Lady Gaga and Prince William Talk About Mental Health
A Dose of Inspiration To Get Your Day Going..
By Repa Hamid, Legends Report Contributor
The well-known ‘Heads Together’ royal charity, spearheaded by Prince Harry, Prince William and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge has produced a series titled ‘oktosay’. The series aims to open up the conversation about mental health and captures the conversations of people who are dealing with anorexia, PTSD, bereavement or a stressful day at work. The video below is from the ‘oktosay’ series where Lady GaGa, an urban music artist and Prince William discuss how important it is to talk about mental health. You can see the full series here.
The series inspired others to talk about their mental health, where charities like The Mix, Mind, Place2Be and more produced their own videos where people could talk about mental health too. As Prince Harry says in the video:
‘(it is time) to feel normal about mental health – it's the same as physical health.'
We hope this series and how inspiring it has been for others can continue to encourage people to reach out to others and talk about their mental well-being. Often as a society we can ignore the importance of our own mental health yet it impacts every single area of our lives! It’s so important we invest time, money and effort into our emotional and mental health.
How can we do that? By reading personal growth books like 7 Habits of Highly Effective People to nourish our mindsets, reading sites like the Legends Report or even just speaking to someone about how you are feeling are all ways to invest in ourselves! What do you think, have you benefited from investing time and effort in your mental well being or do you need support investing in this?
