@Regrann from @itgetsbrighter - Harry: "I always thought to myself, what's the point of bringing up the past, what's the point of bringing up something thats only going to make you sad?" Now, he's spearheading the #oktosay movement - talking can and does help. #oktosay#headstogether - #regrann
@Regrann from @denniscoy - Those who know me well, know that I am very passionate about mental health care becoming part of everyday life for everyone, without stigma - and you also may know my love of the British Royal Family. Heads Together is an amazing initiative that I hope flourishes through the U.K. and finds its way through the US. As I always say, we go to see a physician for a stubbed toe, but fail to take proper care of our minds. Don't let fear, pride, or stigma keep you from taking care of your beautiful minds. Many thanks to the Duke, Duchess, and Prince for developing and launching this initiative. #oktosay - #regrann
#oktosay#mentalhealth#endthestigma#dontjudge#acknowledgeyourfeelings @Regrann from @victoriadanielestelleoscar - Sorry, this isn't Swedish Royal Family related but for me it's an important post!!👑 Today the London Marathon took place and a lot of runners supported Heads Together. A campaign of Kate, William and Harry that aims to challenge mental health stigma and change how it is perceived. I've got inspired by @katemidleton as she posted about #oktosay on Instagram as well. During the marathon a lot of people, me included, posted about their mental health issues or general problems because it's #oktosay. I think it's important to be able to speak about it to others and if you feel "ready", your invited to talk about your issues in the comments or send me a direct message!!❤ Well, I'll start. I lost my mum when I was 15 years old. I wouldn't say I struggle with mental health but it's extremely hard for me living without her. Sometimes it all gets too much and I kind of break down, have a bad mood or ask myself how to move on. Usually, I don't speak about my feelings towards this situation but I should remember more often: It's #oktosay. Thanks for reading❤ - #regrann

As counsellors, we talk about our clients journey, their growth and change and gaining empowerment to overcome their mental health issues. However this journey isn't done quickly and at times can feel overwhelming and difficult. But staying and trusting with the process you will succeed. Like footsteps in the sand, take things slowly, one step at a time. You can do this ❤️
"Don't assume I am weak because I have panic attacks. You will never know the amount of strength it takes to face the world every day." For 12 years now, I am fighting these monsters on a daily base. I am tired of people telling me 'to just ignore it', 'to just go on', 'to start exercising', to switch off the button', 'that it is all in my head' and so on. Don't you think I have tried every possible thing in the world 1.000 times already to beat these monsters? Don't you think I want to live a 'normal' life and be able to just do everything you do without being scared or exhausted? Come sit here with me, all these hours home alone. Crying my eyes out because these monsters are bigger than me and all I can do is watch the world pass by from behind my window. Come see that unbearable pain that that is causing me. Come feel what I feel. Then you can judge. Or maybe understand. This is not the life that I want or chose to have. I am wishing, hoping, fighting, working every day that one day soon I can beat these monsters. And the next step to make that happen is to show this in public. My therapist asked me to visualise my panic attacks. So I can try to communicate with them and hopefully beat them (no I am not crazy 😉). To also make it public to show the people around me, as well as the rest of the world, what I am dealing with on a daily base. I am ready for the next fight! #ladygaga#princewilliam#mentalhealth#awereness#panic#panicattack#iamnotcrazy#iamnotweak#thisisreal#thestruggleisreal#oktosay#headstogether @headstogether 🖌 by @janisvdh and 'borrowed' some pictures from the internet 📸 by @janisvdh
All the ❤️for these 3 putting #mentalhealth awareness high up on their priority list👊. Princess Diana will be beaming with admiration 🤗. Parenthood can be filled with our own (and society's) ideals and expectations about how we're all supposed to feel but it IS #oktosay when it's not hitting the mark. The 'mark' might feel so far away that we can't comprehend how we're ever going to make our way there. It's never a sign of weakness or failure to be honest about it. It just is not. We are human and none of us are immune from that! We are feeling beings 😮😭😀😫😡😍😰😬and our brains need nurturing just as much as the rest of our bodies.
