We love how vocal Demi Lovato is about her struggle with bipolar disorder so we are not surprised the singer is taking a stand when it comes to mental health reform.
In a new interview with MSNBC, Demi talks about how she felt before she was diagnosed and how hard it was to speak about her emotions and how much she was really struggling, even to those she was closest to. She also was very vocal about the recent tragedies in Oregon and how there needs to be more awareness regarding mental health.
"Well, unfortunately, we've had several instances where mental health has been brought to the attention by the media because of these tragedies," Demi told interviewer Tamron Hall in the talk. "I think it's really important to remember that people with mental illness are actually more likely to inflict harm on themselves and become the victim rather than be the perpetrators."
She also mentioned: "When I got diagnosed, it was a relief to know that I wasn't just being ungrateful, that it was actually me being sick," she said in the interview. "I remember going to treatment and there were girls that would … be there for a week and then their insurance would stop paying. That's a problem."
We love how honest Demi is about her struggles and are happy to know that the "Confident" singer cares about the cause deeply.
