In honor of World Mental Health Day, Prince William, Prince Harry, and Princess Kaye came together to promote awareness and it was awesome!
Prince William kicked things off by telling the crowd at an event for their charity Heads Together,
“Mental health is not a dirty. We all have mental health like we do physical health, good or ill. But not seeking help at those times when it all seems too much or we are depressed or anxious, can impact the rest of our lives. Put it simply the three of us want to make asking for help no longer a big deal.”
Princess Kate added,
“William, Harry, and I feel it is our duty to do what we can, with your help, to shine a spotlight on emotional wellbeing and highlight the support that is out there to prevent or manage the pain at difficult times.”
We love that these three are setting such a great example! This is not the first time the royals have taken it upon themselves to spread awareness about mental health. A while back Princess Kate spone out about the inportance of getting help if you need it and even promised that she would take the necessary measures for her two kids if needed.
It was Prince Harry who ended the speech and called for an end to the stigma surrounding mental health:
“It’s time we ended the shame around mental health – the fear of judgement that stops people talking or getting help.”
