Lady Gaga says mental health services will be offered as part of the pre-concert festivities on the upcoming U.S. leg of her Born This Way Ball tour.
The singer's Born This Way Foundation announced recently that the Born Brave Bus will join her on tour as a "space for youth to gather and celebrate their individuality in a safe arena where everyone is encouraged to be the person they were born to be."
On Twitter, the 26-year-old pop star explained that this will include "professional private or group chats about mental health, depression, bullying, school & friends."
For those wondering about the "counseling" at the BTWBall BornBrave pre-show, it will be a fun tailgating experience for monsters to unite— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) December 28, 2012
At the #BornBraveBus you have access to professional private or group chats about mental health, depression, bullying, school & friends.— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) December 28, 2012
I feel like most kids don't look for help because they feel embarrassed so mom + I wanted to break the stigmas around "help" and make it fun— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) December 28, 2012
The U.S. leg of the Born This Way Ball tour kicks off on Jan. 14. The full list of dates can be found at her website.
