The new generation of British royals has been inspiring people with their humanitarian projects. This time Prince William, Kate Middleton, and Prince Harry have launched series called "O.K. to Say".
According to Vanity Fair, the ten-part video series "O.K. to Say" is part of their campaign Heads Together. The project focuses on raising awareness and reducing the stigma related to mental health.
The campaign talks with various people about their mental wellbeing and gives special focus to young people, veterans, and the homeless. Each part of "O.K. to Say" features emotional conversations between a person who is suffering from some kind of mental illness and a loved one.
The purpose of "O.K. to Say" is to encourage people to open about their current mental status and encourages them to ask help when needed. The videos touch topics including, depression, suicidal thoughts, bipolar disorder, anxiety, etc and what can be done to overcome them.
"Attitudes to mental health are at a tipping point," Vanity Fair quoted a statement by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry. "We hope these films show people how simple conversations can change the direction of an entire life. Please share them with your friends and families and join us in a national conversation on mental health in the weeks ahead."
The 12 videos have been listed on the "O.K. to Say" Youtube playlist. As reported by HNGN earlier, Kate Middleton has recently opened up about her own struggles and fear being a mother in order to promote a healthy maternal mental health.
Being a part of Heads Together campaign, Kate Middleton admitted that there can be times for a mother that might lead lack of confidence and feelings of ignorance. Therefore, they should seek help because their children need their mothers to be in a good mental and physical health and there is no shame in asking for support.
