Among the named ambassadors is Lady Gaga’s mom, Cynthia Germanotta. As the ambassador for mental health, she aims to promote healthier lives, improved workforces and overall better mental health across the globe, through her foundation – Born This Way.

Germanotta took to Twitter to reflect on her new role: “I’m honoured 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.”
