Lady GagaAlways one to try something bold and socially helpful, Lady Gaga announced that her upcoming Born This Way Ball shows will provide free counseling sessions to attendees who seek it.

Therapists will be available at a pre-show "tailgating experience" on the BornBrave Bus, which will also feature food, games, and DJ sets from Lady Starlight.

"BornBrave Bus Is a place where mental health + depression are taken seriously w/ no judgement, FREE real help available to all...

The Born This Way Ball kicks off in Vancouver on January 11.
