Mental illness shame: Lady Gaga chats to Prince William on FaceTime

Lady Gaga believes there is "a lot of shame" attached to mental illness.

The two-part series, Mind Over Marathon, starts on BBC One at 21:00 BST on Thursday 20 April, as part of a Minds Matter series of programming about mental health issues.

At the weekend, Prince Harry, 32, revealed he had endured two years of "total chaos" in his late twenties and had sought counselling to help come to terms with the death of his mother, Diana, when he was 12. In it, Prince William opens up about his own loss and how he learned to deal with his grief. Gaga admitted how she suffered from PTSD after she had been raped at 19.

"Even though it was hard, it was the best thing that could come out of my mental illness".

"We have to make the strongest most relentless attempt we can to normalize mental health issues so people can feel that they can come forward", Gaga concludes for their unlikely collab.

Harry said he feels that Princess Di would be "overwhelmed and hugely encouraged by the fact that the United Kingdom, not known for wanting to talk about mental health issues, has suddenly got to this point and it's only taken a year, specifically this week has really energized the whole nation, which is fantastic". When asked how she felt about sharing this deeply personal account, Gaga replied, "It made me very nervous at first". "You feel like something's wrong with you", she explained. "For me, waking up every day and feeling sad and going onstage is something that is very hard to describe", Gaga says. He added, "The appetite has always been there, but I think we've all been quite surprised how many people out there have been wanting to talk about their own issues".

Heads Together has been chosen as the charity of the year for this Sunday's London Marathon.

Towards the end of the call, both personalities also agreed to sit down and discuss what they can do together when Lady Gaga visits the U.K.in October. "I should be so happy, but you can't help it when in the morning you wake up, you are so exhausted, you are so sad, you are so full of anxiety and the shakes that you can barely think". I feel like we are not hiding any more.
