Essentric pop singer extraordinaire Lady Gaga has collaborated with the National Council for Behavioural Health to promote mental health awareness, reports Digital Spy. The singer, who recently toured South Africa for the first time, is said to be gearing up for the launch of her 27-city 'Born Brave Bus Tour', which will travel throughout North America. The pop star has invited the National Council to set up booths at her shows where fans may speak with psychologists. GaGa's mother Cynthia Germanotta, president of the Born This Way Foundation, says of the plan: "Now more than ever, our kids need access to support within their communities, including mental health services. "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." The singer, who has promoted LGBTQ rights through her Born This Way charity, teamed up with UNICEF earlier this year to spread the message of her organisation.
