Weeks after the gruesome shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut, more and more celebrities are doing their share to help people in their own ways. Lady Gaga, for her part, announced that she’ll be providing free counseling and mental health services to fans before her shows when the Born This Way Ball resumes touring in 2013.
Lady Gaga, who has been helping fans struggling with eating disorders and those suffering from bullying, announced the news in a Facebook post Friday:
Gaga said: “For those wondering about the “counseling” at the BTWBall BornBrave pre-show, it will be a fun tailgating experience for monsters to unite. At the BornBrave Bus you have access to professional private or group chats about mental health, depression, bullying, school & friends. There will also be food and games, DJ White Shadow and Lady Starlight will DJ with host BREEDLOVE to keep the experience fun.”
Lady Gaga continued to explain why she decided to provide the service, saying: “BornBrave Bus Is a place where mental health + depression are taken seriously w/ no judgement, FREE real help available to all. 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.”
Gaga’s Born This Way Ball resumes in Vancouver on January 11.
