Lady Gaga plans to offer free counselling at her 2013 Born This Way Ball Tour.

The pop superstar made the announcement on Saturday.

Therapists will be on hand to help fans struggling with depression or other mental health issues.

The singer hopes the counselling will be a way to break stigmas around the idea of getting help and make it fun, instead.

“For those wondering about the ’counselling’ at the BTWBall BornBrave pre-show, it will be a fun tailgating experience for monsters to unite,” Gaga wrote on her Twitter page.

“At the BornBrave Bus you have access to professional private or group chats about mental health, depression, bullying, school & friends,” she tweeted.

“There will also be food and games, DJ White Shadow and Lady Starlight will DJ with host BREEDLOVE to keep the experience fun,“ Gaga said in another tweet.

The pop star has previously talked about her struggle with eating disorders and currently works to promote anti-bullying efforts.
