Lady Gaga is taking her anti-bullying charity on tour in an effort to raise awareness of mental health issues.
The US pop star’s Born This Way Foundation has teamed up with the National Council for Behavioral Health to set up booths with psychologists for her fans to talk to at her upcoming concerts in North America.
The Born Brave Bus Tour will visit 27 cities in total, reported Digital Spy.
‘Now more than ever, our kids need access to support within their communities, including mental health services,’ Gaga’s mother Cynthia Germanotta, president of the Born This Way Foundation.
‘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.’
Lady Gaga launched her charity, named after her hit 2011 single, in March.
According to the foundation’s website, its mission is to ‘create a safe place to celebrate individuality, to teach advocacy, promote civic engagement and encourage self-expression, and to provide ways to implement solutions and impact local communities.’
