Lady Gaga Speaks At Patron Awards: "We're In A Mental Health Crisis"

Lady Gaga was honored with a Patron of the Artists Award alongside Harrison Ford by the SAG-AFTRA Foundation on Thursday night in Beverly Hills. In a powerful, nearly 30-minute speech, Gaga called for an end to the stigma surrounding mental health and opened up about her own struggles and thoughts of suicide.

"We are in the midst of a global mental health crisis," Gaga told the star-studded audience. "We are losing a generation of young people who do not believe that their voices are worth hearing, that their pain has no end, and that their contributions are not valuable enough to move the needle in society and culture. We are facing a crisis of epic proportions and the cause of that crisis is our inability or unwillingness to be open and honest about one thing—mental health, today."
