Lady Gaga is taking another big step in her effort to help troubled teens. The pop star announced Saturday she will be offering free counseling before shows on her Born This Way Ball tour in 2013. Mental health professionals will staff the BornBrave Bus, where fans can take advantage of various forms of therapy as well as food, games and music.

The service is designed to relieve the stigma of seeking help, Gaga said on Facebook. "At the BornBrave Bus you have access to professional private or group chats about mental health, depression, bullying, school & friends," she wrote. It's the latest of the singer's exemplary efforts to address teen issues; early this year she launched the Born This Way Foundation to combat bullying and abandonment.

"It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
