Lady Gaga’s Counseling On Wheels
Gaga announced her plan to provide pre-concert counseling to fans via a posting on her Facebook page, saying fans would have access to “professional private or group chats about mental health, depression, bullying, school and friends.”
While Gaga is also promising music, food and games to “keep the experience fun,” she is also dead serious about providing mental health services.
“BornBrave Bus is a place where mental health + depression are taken seriously w/ no judgment, FREE real help available to all,” Gaga wrote on Facebook. “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.”
In other Gaga news, a Yale University psychologist is joining the advisory board of the Born This Way Foundation.
Research scientist Marc Brackett is one of seven scholars named to the board. Brackett, who has been working on an anti-bullying project on Facebook, said he will help “promote the tenets of the foundation,” according to the New Haven Register, adding that he will “get to go to some concerts,” specifically, shows in Boston, Connecticut and New York.
