Elton John praised prince Harry for opening up about mental health problems


The close friend of British royals praised the younger prince for finally dealing with a depression caused by his mother’s death. Harry lived with this pain 20 years before telling the whole truth about how extremely hard it was. And Sir Elton says it was right. ‘Your bravery, honesty and humanity are a beacon in today’s world,’ the singer wrote to Harry in an Instagram post. ‘It’s a sign of strength to ask for help, not weakness. Asking for help saved me from the mental illness of my addictions. We all need help sometimes, and must never feel shame or stigma in doing so.’ ‘I can safely say that losing my mum at the age of 12, and therefore shutting down all of my emotions for the last 20 years, has had a quite serious effect on not only my personal life but my work as well,’ Prince Harry tells British journalist Bryony Gordon on the mental health podcast Mad World.
He added: ‘I have probably been very close to a complete breakdown on numerous occasions when all sorts of grief and sort of lies and misconceptions and everything are coming to you from every angle.’
