Pop concerts and therapy don’t usually go together… unless you’re Lady Gaga.
“It will be a fun tailgating experience for monsters to unite,” Gaga told her Facebook fans. “[Concert goers] will have access to professional private or group chats about mental health, depression, bullying, school and friends.”
Gaga continued: “The BornBrave Bus is a place where mental health and depression are taken seriously with no judgement, FREE real help available to all. I feel like most kids don’t look for help because they feel embarrassed so mom and I wanted to break the stigmas around ‘help’ and make it fun.”
The initiative is part of Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation, an organization she founded in 2011 “to foster a more accepting society, where differences are embraced and individuality is celebrated.”
We’re inspired to see such a mainstream figure focusing on mental health for young people. What do you think?
