    Sophie Turner on depression: 'It’s a very British thing – that idea you should just get on with it'

    Sophie Turner has spoken out about the benefits of going to therapy for her mental health, describing the idea that you should “just get on with” depression as a “very British thing”.The Game of Thrones star has been open about her struggles with the condition in the past, and revealed that despite being seen as “a bit self-indulgent” and “soft”, therapy, along with medication, has helped her “immeasurably”.“My parents are still like, 'Why do you go to therapy?' and I’m like, 'Because I’m depressed, remember?'" Turner told PorterEdit. “It’s a very British thing – that idea you should just get on with it, ‘chin up’.”Turner, who stars in the upcoming X-Men spin-off, Dark Phoenix, went on to tout the benefits of discussing mental health issues in the public eye.“The first step to any kind of movement is just to put it out there, talk about it and make it less of a taboo so that people can go and get help and not feel embarrassed to do so,” the 23-year-old said. “People feel so much shame about it, so if, by talking about it, I can even have an impact on one person, that would be awesome.”Turner’s comments come after she revealed she experienced suicidal thoughts at the age of 19.> View this post on Instagram> > GameofThrones has ended, but @SophieT’s next life chapter is set to be even more exciting – starting with marriage and a blockbuster leading role in XMenDarkPhoenix.

I say I wasn’t very depressed when I was younger, but I used to think about suicide a lot when I was younger. I don’t know why though,” she told US talk show host Dr Phil on his podcast, Phil in the Blanks, in April.“Maybe it’s just a weird fascination I used to have, but yeah, I used to think about it. I don’t think I ever would have gone through with it. I don’t know.”You can read Turner’s full interview with PorterEdit here.

    Prince William documentary sparks important conversation about mental health and male suicide

    The BBC’s new documentary fronted by the Duke of Cambridge has prompted an important discussion on men’s mental health and male suicide.Royal Team Talk saw the future King engage in a roundtable discussion with sporting heroes, including Thierry Henry, Gareth Southgate and Peter Crouch, about overcoming the most difficult moments in their careers by being open about what they were going through.“Guys, in general, find it very difficult to talk about their feelings – doing what we’re doing here makes a huge difference,” said Prince William.In the discussion, the men talk about feeling “forbidden to cry” at times, with Southgate referencing football’s “culture of not opening up about anything in your life without being seen as weak”.“But that’s the key,” the England manager continued, “it isn’t a weakness, it’s actually a strength.”Powerful moments such as these have sparked widespread praise on Twitter, with many viewers sharing anecdotes about how being open or playing in team sports helped them combat mental health issues.Speaking about his brother, who took his own life in 2014, mental health campaigner Jonny Sharples wrote: “When Simon died by suicide four years ago, I’d never have imagined we’d see the England manager on TV openly discussing his mental health. “I wish Simon could’ve seen a programme like ARoyalTeamTalk, but there’s comfort in knowing countless others will feel the benefit of seeing it.”> ARoyalTeamTalk is such an important watch, the stats around suicide in males is heartbreaking. Your gender, your job etc doesn’t guarantee you happiness, mental health is serious. Never be ashamed to admit you’re not ok, speaking out/checking on someone can save a life.> > — 𝘾𝙝𝙖𝙧𝙡𝙤𝙩𝙩𝙚 𝙅𝙚𝙣𝙠𝙞𝙣𝙨.
