Lady Gaga and Born This Way Foundation launch new online mental health course 

Lady Gaga and her Born This Way Foundation have launched a new resource for young people for their mental health.

Gaga and Born This Way have teamed up with Canadian charity to offer the Be There Certificate, a free online mental health course for youth and youth advocates.

The course is designed to teach young people how to recognize when someone might be struggling and learn ways to be a support.

In a video message announcing the course on social media, Gaga laid out the “five golden rules of how to safely be there for someone.”

“Number one: Say what you see. Number two: Show you care. Number three: Hear them out. Number four: Know your role. Number five: Connect to help, kindly and safely,” Gaga said.
