Lady Gaga used her time in the spotlight at today's Grammys to make a powerful statement about mental health, urging viewers not to "look away" when they notice that someone is struggling.

Winning her third gong for the night, the Oscar-nominated actress and singer took to the stage after winning the Grammy for the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for 'Shallow', the song she shares with Bradley Cooper on the soundtrack for A Star Is Born.

"Thank you, thank you so much. I've got to thank God. Thank you for looking out for me, thank you for my family at home, I love you," she said.

"Thank you, I wish Bradley was here with me right now… Bradley, I loved singing this song with you. If I don't get another chance to say this, I just want to say I'm so proud to be part of a movie that addresses mental health issues, they're so important."

She continued: "And a lot of artists, a lot of artists deal with that. And we got to take care of each other. So, if you see somebody that is hurting, don't look away. And if you are hurting, even though it might be hard, try to find that bravery within yourself to dive deep and go tell somebody and take them up in your head with you.

"I love you, thank you so much to the Grammys."

Gaga also took home a Grammy for solo album Joanne.
