In the news….

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-39639264?intlink_from_url=http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/topics/814465c5-404b-4c88-889f-45907ba1f402/mental-health&link_location=live-reporting-story
The above link relates to Prince William revealing his distress over his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales’s death back in 1997. Along with Prince Harry, the two princes have been getting together for a mental health charity to get people to reveal their inner troubles, never an easy task.

The bottom line of what Prince Harry was saying is that keeping a “stiff upper lip”, in the British tradition, can be counter productive. By revealing the torments and troubles of living with a mental illness, people can help deal with those problems. A listening ear and plenty of empathy from others can also help too.

Give the article a browse. Very interesting stuff.
