Taking care of her Little Monsters, Lady Gaga has announced that she'll provide free counseling and mental health services to fans before her shows when the "Born This Way Ball" starts up again in 2013.

The "Poker Face" singer took to Twitter to share the outreach with her fans. She described the effort, saying, "For those wondering about the 'counseling' at the BTWBall BornBrave pre-show, it will be a fun tailgating experience for monsters to unite."

She added, "At the BornBrave Bus you have access to professional private or group chats about mental health, depression, bullying, school & friends."

For those just seeking a good time, Gaga assured fans, "There will also be food and games, DJ White Shadow and Lady Starlight will DJ with host BREEDLOVE to keep the experience fun."

Finally, the 26-year-old star explained her intentions, tweeting, "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."
