Lady Gaga fans looking to get more than just overpriced merchandise at her shows are in luck. According to MTV, the singer has just announced that free counseling services will be available during her upcoming Born This Way Ball tour. Concert goers will be able to utilize the BornBrave bus, a traveling therapy center.
The edgy performer, who was born Stefani Germanotta, took to her Facebook page to clarify what type of "counseling" would be provided.
"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," the singer said.
"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."
Since skyrocketing to fame, the star has been involved in a number of causes that promote self-acceptance and self-compassion. Gaga started the Born This Way Foundation, which focuses on issues affecting today's youth, in February along with her mother, Cynthia Germanotta.
In September, the Grammy winner responded to criticism about her weight by posting scantily clad photos of herself with a caption that read "Bulimia and anorexia since I was 15." The 26-year-old also asked others to partake in a "Body Revolution" by sharing their own body image issues via her website LittleMonsters.com.
"My mother and I created the Born This Way Foundation for one reason: 'to inspire bravery,'" Gaga said in a post. "This profile is an extension of that dream. Be brave and celebrate with us your 'perceived flaws,' as society tells us. May we make our flaws famous and thus redefine the heinous."
On Christmas, Gaga announced via Twitter that photographer Terry Richardson is currently developing a documentary about the making of her upcoming album, "Artpop," which is scheduled to be released some time next year.
The 2013 "Born This Way Ball" is set to begin on Jan. 11 in Vancouver, Canada.
