Prince William Hosts Soccer Viewing Party as Heads Up Wellbeing Campaign Celebrates Showcase Final

On the eve of the match, William said in a promotional video chat with the England soccer boss, Gareth Southgate, that it is not a "weakness" to discuss mental health.  "The idea of being able to be open about your emotions and fix a problem is a positive, it’s a strength, not a weakness. And I think that that culture is something that we hopefully are seeing a slight shift in,” he said in the #SoundofSupport film.

And Southgate told him, “I think there is very often this feeling ‘I’m the only one, there’s nowhere to go’ and some of the most successful people in the world have had these issues or have problems with self-confidence, self-belief. It doesn’t have to be an extreme case. There are various issues with people’s mental health, that can affect how they feel or how they perform and it’s making sure that we don’t feel that there’s a stigma for people, that it’s acceptable to look for help.”
