Lady Gaga has released a short film exploring the relationship between kindness and mental health to coincide with World Kindness Day on Nov. 13.

The 30-minute special supported by Gaga's Born This Way Foundation follows a group of 11 young people exploring their personal mental health journeys. The conversations highlight the relationship between kindness and mental illness and how to overcome the stigma that comes when discussing the issue.

Kindness and mental health go hand in hand, Gaga said in the film. To me, kindness isn't politeness.

It gives a platform for LGBTQ youth to show how kindness can impact their lives, while encouraging others to say it is beautiful to be transgender.

Gaga, a former philanthropist who is preparing for the award season for her upcoming movie, "House of Gucci," has released he book, Channel Kindness, with essays from LGBTQ teens emphasized the importance of sharing stories. It's been able to meet young people around the world who share their stories with her, and they have shared their experiences, Gage said.

Through stories of love, joy, grief, empathy and radical acceptance, young people continue to show what it means to communicate kindness with themselves and others.
