The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry continued his campaign in the area of ending stigma associated with mental issues and encourage more openness in discussing mental health challenges. This is the campaign he took to South Ealing today.
The encounter was shared in the newly created Instagram handle for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Sussuxroyal.
The post reads:
Today The Duke of Sussex met with families, children and young adults at @Ymcaenglandandwales in South Ealing as a continuation of his dedicated work in the mental health space. “There continues to be huge progress in smashing the stigma that surrounds mental health, but let’s keep normalising the conversation. Let’s keep reminding each other that it’s okay to not be okay, and to listen to each other. After all, how we think determines how we act, how we feel, and how we treat ourselves and those around us.” -The Duke of Sussex
It takes courage, strength and honesty, but talking through your mental health issues often becomes the key to dealing with them.
Just like physical exercise, which we all know is good for us; we have to care for our minds as much as we do for our bodies.
1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem at some point in their lives. It is a part of all of us. Have an unashamed conversation on how you feel, be empowered to share your story and you will see you are not alone. For more information visit @heads together 📷Royal Communications / PA
