Lady Gaga and Prince William Fight Stigma
A short Skype conversation between pop star Lady Gaga and British royalty Prince William was recorded and shared as part of the #OKtoSay mental health anti-stigma campaign.
In the conversation Lady Gaga talks about her own mental health issues and they discuss what it means to share how she feels with the world (she also wrote an open letter describing her struggles). Prince William, along with wife Duchess Catherine, and his brother Prince Harry have championed mental health awareness and anti-stigma in their work with HeadsTogther, including the campaign #OKtoSay, and have talked about their own issues. It’s also very powerful to hear the message from a pop superstar.
Both celebrities encourage people to share how they feel as the first step toward healing.
