Demi Lovato has been quite honest about the mental health issues she has faced in the past. She believes that people who suffer from mental health problems must seek help by reaching out to people.
Lovato started her acting career in 2002 and her journey involves some very difficult times. At age 17, she was hospitalized due to drug overdose, and later in her career, she was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder.
She had an eating disorder as well which was another challenge piled on top of various others. On her road to recovery, she has had relapses and then managed to get back on track through more effort.
One of the reasons why her fans love her is because of her honesty regarding her tough times in life. She has been very vocal about it and has constantly reassured people that they are not alone.
Given the Coronavirus Pandemic, isolation has led to a rise in mental health problems in people more than ever. Cases of depression, anxiety, domestic abuse, grief, drug abuse, financial stress, etc. have overwhelmingly increased in the past few months.
Demi Lovato took to Instagram to reach out to the people who are fighting their demons alone. She recently announced funding to launch The Mental Health Fund so that she can aid organizations that provide crisis counseling.
People who are familiar with mental health problems are aware that isolation will only make things worse. The quarantine restricts human contact leading to increased anxiety when there is nobody to talk to or spend time with.
Hence, The Mental Health Fund helps organizations to counsel those who are impacted. On her Instagram post, she listed numbers to reach out to in various countries including the US, UK, Ireland, and Canada.
