Lady Gaga, Prince William team up for mental health campaign

In their video call - released on the Royal Family's Facebook page - they discussed ending the stigma.

Along with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, he started the "Heads Together" campaign past year to end the stigma around mental health.

Harry admitted that the years of burying his emotions led to "two years of "total chaos" in his 20s and, with the support of his brother, Prince William, he chose to seek professional help when he was 28".

On Tuesday, Lady Gaga and Prince William had a candid conversation about mental health in one epic FaceTime you have to see to believe.

William was inspired to get Gaga involved in the campaign after reading an open letter she wrote in 2016, revealing she struggles with post-traumatic stress disorder.

Prince Harry has revealed that in the years after his mother's death he came close to a "complete breakdown" and was only been able to process his grief after seeking counseling in his twenties.

Harry may not have revealed details of his personal struggles before the interview, but he's made mental health a key initiative for nearly a year.

"In my life, I go, 'Oh my goodness, look at all these lovely, wonderful things that I have".

Wills commended the popstar on writing an open letter to fans about her mental health struggles, saying: "I thought it was incredibly moving and very fearless of you to write down personal feelings. We have to make the strongest, most relentless attempt we can to normalise mental health issues", she said. "It's really important to have this conversation and that you won't be judged". Prince William said that he feels that it's important for many young people to talk about their mental health.

As per New York Times, the prince drew some praise from the different advocates of mental illness with his revelations. Everybody has mental health.

Lady Gaga said: "Even though it was hard, it was the best thing that could come out of my mental illness - was to share it with other people".

The 32-year-old royal was just 12 years old when he lost his mother in 1997 after she was tragically killed in a auto crash in Paris, France, at the age of 36, and has admitted he nearly suffered a "complete breakdown" as he grew up determined not to think about the loss.
