Prince Harry & Mental Health { STOP the Stigma! }

This morning, as I skimmed over my daily HuffPo newsletter, I came across an article that struck a chord with me. 'Prince Harry Wants To Get Rid Of 'Stigma And Scare Stories' Around Mental Health.' 

I love that he's using his celeb, heck, royalty status, to bring attention to this international health epidemic. Mental Health. 


"Prince Harry has spoken out about a variety of mental health topics close to him - like providing mental health support for veterans and limiting smartphone use as a way to increase mindfulness.  He also recently opened up about the important role counseling (and boxing) played in coping with his mother's death."

Approximately 1 in 4 people globally will experience a mental health condition at some point in their lives.

But, many people don't ask for help because of the stigma surrounding it. And, they suffer silently, sometimes, until it's too late.

Take a moment to check in with yourself... How are you? Then, check in with someone who has been having a hard time. How can you help?

Mental Health, like a Cancer, or another physical disease, is the REAL DEAL, and we need to recognize and treat it accordingly.

Guess what? YOU matter!

Blissfully Yours,
