Lady Gaga announced yesterday that she will be offering free counseling services before her shows on the Born This Way Ball tour in 2013. It's another huge step in her effort to help many of her teen fans—earlier this year she launched her Born This Way Foundation in an effort to combat bullying.

Here's what Gaga had to say on her Facebook yesterday:

For those wondering about the "counseling" at the BTWBall BornBrave pre-show, it will be a fun tailgating experience for monsters to unite.
At the BornBrave Bus you have access to professional private or group chats about mental health, depression, bullying, school & friends. There will also be food and games, DJ White Shadow and Lady Starlight will DJ with host BREEDLOVE to keep the experience fun.
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.
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!
