Lady Gaga’s recently posted on her Facebook and Twitter profile that on the Born Brave Bus, during the Born this Way tour, Monsters will have access to professional private or group chats about mental health, depression, bullying, school & friends.
“For those wondering about the “counseling” at the BTWBall BornBrave pre-show, it will be a fun tailgating experience for monsters to unite. “, Gaga explains. “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.”
Now more than ever, Canadians are talking about mental health issues and wanting to see changes to the system worldwide. The compassionate edge that Gaga displays to her Monsters is a stand that more celebrities should take.
We are in a day and age where the stress of finding one’s self, reaching a certain level of achievement, and having our financial house in order is at its all time high. For many young adults life can be an unbearable existence where a little counselling can go a long way.
Despite Gaga’s money and fame, she recognizes that we are all one and we must help one another through our path of life. So admirable!
“I’m counting down the days till the Ball starts up again. ONLY 3 MONTHS LEFT OF TOURING, what will I do!!!!?? I love seeing you every night!”
We hope to see you in Hamilton or Toronto Gaga!
