Mother of Demi Lovato breaks silence“It is very important for people to have these lines because sometimes you feel alone and don’t know who to turn to or who to talk to,” said Lovato. “You’re scared that these thoughts that you have are too dark and need guidance. There is where comes this. You can provide help to people who are struggling”, he completed.
In 2015, the artist spoke with Women’s Health about what it is like to live with bipolar disorder.
“It was a great feeling to discover that there was nothing wrong with me,” said Lovato then. “I simply have a mental illness”.
