The United Nations' World Health Organization (WHO) announced on Monday (May 20) its four new Goodwill Ambassadors, one of which is Lady Gaga's mom, Cynthia Germanotta as the ambassador for mental health. The role aims to promote healthier lives, improved workforces and overall better mental health across the globe.
Gemanotta took to Twitter to reflect on her new role. "I’m honored to serve as @WHO Goodwill Ambassador for Mental Health and to work alongside @DrTedros + his extraordinary team to ensure mental #healthforall is a global priority," she wrote. "We face many challenges but there are even more reasons for hope. It’s #TimeToAct, together."
"I’m so proud of @momgerm for being asked to serve as Goodwill Ambassador for @WHO," Gaga mirrored in her own tweet. "The goal of @btwfoundation is to bring awareness to mental health and empower everyone to create a kinder and braver world, and this is a huge part of that."
