Watch Lady Gaga FaceTime with Prince William About Mental Health

20 April 2017, 04:11 | Myron Mathis

Gaga's open letter in 2016 saw her discuss her battle with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder after being raped at the age of 19.

"I thought it was incredibly moving and very courageous of you to write down such personal feelings", the royal told Gaga during the call released on the Royal Family's Facebook page - "I wanted to ask you how you found speaking out and how it made you feel?" "For me, waking up every day and feeling sad and going on stage is something that is very hard to describe".

Suicide is the biggest killer of men under 45 in Britain, and William said seeing the impact of suicide through his work as a an air ambulance helicopter pilot had been a "tipping point" in his decision to campaign on mental health issues.

Lady Gaga and British royal Prince William have teamed up to encourage mental health sufferers to speak out about their issues.

"It's time that everyone speaks up", he told Lady Gaga. The Duke and Lady Gaga also made plans to meet in the United Kingdom in October to discuss how they can work together and do more to tackle stigma on mental health with Lady Gaga saying "we have to make the strongest, most relentless attempt we can to normalise mental health issues".

The track has already shot to the top of the charts around the world and has been praised by fans as a return to form for the Paparazzi singer. "I wanted to ask you how you found speaking out and how it made you feel". "Even though it was hard [to talk about it] it was the best thing to come out of it".

The Duke chatted to the mother during the BBC1 documentary Mind Over Marathon, being screened on Thursday evening, that charts the efforts of a group of runners with mental health problems who are training for the London Marathon, which takes place on Sunday. "We are starting to talk and that's what we need to do, really".

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, along with William's brother Prince Harry lead the campaign and the Gaga video was the latest in their #oktosay series, which CNN reported shows "people from all walks of life discussing their own mental health challenges".

Prince William reassured Gaga that that it was important to "break open the fear and taboo" about speaking out.
