What can we do?”, Lady Gaga co-writes a powerful op-ed piece with Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-general of the World Health Organization. Gaga and Ghebreyesus note that suicide is the second leading cause of death around the world among 15-29 year olds and half of all mental illness starts at the age of 14. In addition to the staggering suicide numbers, Gaga and Ghebreyesus also touch upon the lack of resources to help eliminate the mental health emergency.
