Student or not, this video of Princes William and Harry talking to Princess Kate about their late mother raises very important points for all those who have a mental health condition, or if you are still suffering from a traumatic event like the young Princes, like losing a family member.

If you, like thousands of others like you, experience a mental health problem, it is so important to seek treatment as the effects of MH problems can be as if not more life threatening than any physical wound. After all, you wouldn't let a physical wound fester, so why let a mental wound fester?

Access2Learn wishes to express its sincerest thanks to our Royal Family for its continued efforts in removing the senseless stigma attached to Mental Health!

See the amazing moment young Holly decides to stand up and openly declare her autism!

Declaring one's autism, or any hidden disability for that matter, is a huge turning point for anyone. Yes it can be scary and sometimes upsetting to accept that one is different and has special needs, but the relief it brings and the doors it opens cannot be described by mere words. People understand for the first time, support is made available and slowly but surely you become more confident as you begin to overcome your obstacles.

A big thanks to the National Autistic Society for sharing this!
