Lady Gaga said Saturday she plans to offer free counseling at her 2013 Born This Way Ball Tour, The Daily Beast reported.

The pop superstar made the announcement on her Facebook page on Saturday saying fans can get a "tailgating experience" on her BornBrave Bus before the concert. Therapists will be on hand to help fans struggling with depression or other mental health issues, New York Magazine's Vulture blog said.

"For those wondering about the 'counseling' at the BTWBall BornBrave pre-show, it will be a fun tailgating experience for monsters to unite," Gaga wrote. "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."

Gaga said she feels "like most kids don't look for help because they feel embarrassed" so she wants getting "help" to be a positive experience.

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