(NEW YORK) — 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 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.”
