Vital to break down taboo of mental illness: William, Gaga

It comes after Prime Minister Theresa May praised Prince Harry for his bravery in revealing that he sought counselling to come to terms with the death of his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales.

Heads Together most recently launched a series of films centered around the importance of speaking up about mental health.

William said he had learned that "it's really important to have this conversation".

The 31-year-old singer has opened up to Prince William about her personal battles with depression in a FaceTime chat, and the star has revealed she felt nervous when she started discussing her issues publicly because of the stigma surrounding the condition.

The video - which had been watched over 500,000 times within hours of its release - is part of the Heads Together campaign, a mental health charity championed by William, his wife Kate and brother, Prince Harry.

Prince William and Lady Gaga's warm and cordial discussion focuses on how beneficial it is to be able to talk to a friend or family member about your mental health, and how - once you get over the hesitation to talk about your own mental illness - you won't be judged. "For me, waking up every day and feeling sad and going onstage is something that is very hard to describe", Gaga says. "You feel like something's wrong with you", she explained.

"But its about saying this is apart of me and that's okay". "I should be so happy.' But you can't help it if in the morning, when you wake up, you're so exhausted, you're so sad".

Harry was asked whether he was in a good place as a result of dating U.S. actress Meghan Markle but he replied: "The point that we've learnt over this campaign is that if you're able and comfortable enough to be able to talk about certain issues, certain experiences, then you come out of it a far better person".

Prince William admired Lady Gaga's "openness" in her letter and asked her to lend her hand to the Heads Together campaign. "I still feel, 20 years later about my mother, I still have shock within me". To share it with other people and let our generation as well as other generations know that if you are feeling not well in your mind, you are not alone.
