Lady Gaga FaceTimed Prince William to Discuss This Serious Health Issue

Lady Gaga opened up about her struggles with mental illness in a Facetime conversation with Prince William. The pair discussed the powerful films that have been released showing people from all walks of life discussing their mental health challenges under the #oktosay banner.

Lady Gaga recently appeared at Coachella festival and managed to confuse fans of The Cure over the weekend, after releasing a new song of the same name.

Gaga - whose full name is Stefani Germanotta - spoke about her struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in an open letter for the first time in December a year ago, and she believes addressing her internal fight helped her to overcome her battles, and she has encouraged other people facing the same problem she did to speak about it.

The 31-year-old joins the likes of rapper Professor Green, comedian Ruby Wax and actor and presenter Stephen Fry who are already part of the Heads Together campaign which hopes to change how mental health issues are perceived.

In the video, Lady Gaga makes herself a hot drink before the two have an honest conversation about the stigma around mental health.

He said: "As you can see, you know, I have my own reasons for being involved in mental health, what happened to me with my mother when I was younger, but equally the charitable work I do at the moment and the areas that I'm involved in, it all comes back to mental health".

Prince William, whose Heads Together charity arranged the conversation, said: "It's time that everyone speaks up and really feels normal about mental health". "Just having a conversation with a friend or family member can really make such a difference".

At the end of their chat, Prince William mentioned that he would like to meet with Gaga when she comes to the United Kingdom in October to discuss possible ways they could work together on his mental health campaign. But it was like saying "this is a part of me, and that's OK"'.

Lady Gaga and Prince William have come together to with the aim of ending the "shame" of speaking out about mental illness. "We are starting to talk and that's what we need to do, really".

"Catherine and I are clear that we want both George and Charlotte to grow up feeling able to talk about their emotions and feelings", Prince William told Calmzine. It's so important to break open that fear and that taboo which is only gonna lead to more problems down the line.
