Lady GaGa Teams Up With Mental Health Charity
Singer hoping to raise awareness as part of her Born Brave Bus Tour...
Lady GaGa has teamed up with the National Council for Behavioural Health, in order to spread awareness of mental health issues.
According to Digital Spy, the Poker Face singer is about to embark on her epic 27-city Born Brave Bus Tour in North America, and has invited the organisation to set up a booth at each show where fans will be able to talk to psychologists.
Mental illness is set to become a hotly debated topic of discussion in the US, following the recent tragic events at Sandy Hook Elementary school.
And GaGa's mother Cynthia Germanotta - who is president of the Born This Way Foundation, which promotes equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights - believes young people across America need more support.
She explained: "Now more than ever, our kids need access to support within their communities, including mental health services.
"By connecting youth to these local resources, we hope to plant the seeds that will help them deal with today's challenges and inspire them to continue exercising their strength and bravery well after the Born Brave Bus leaves town."
Back in October Lady G was awarded the LennonOno Grant for Peace prize for "changing the mental map" of the world.
