Demi Lovato is a vision in white as she attends the 2013 National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day on Tuesday afternoon (May 7) held at the University of the District of Columbia Community College in Washington D.C.
The 20-year-old singer was presented with an award for her work as a mentor to young adults with mental health and substance use challenges.
Together with SAMHSA Administrator Pamela S. Hyde, they will focus on the importance of social connectedness — a sense of community — in enhancing resilience in young adults with mental health and substance use challenges at home, school, work, and in accessing health care services.
“Honored to receive an award from @Sebelius + appear w/5 brave ppl sharing their resilience stories,” Demi tweeted.
Awareness Day is SAMHSA’s annual observance of the importance of caring for every child’s mental health and will be observed nationwide on Thursday, May 9th.
Album titles include “Made in the USA”, “Neon Lights”, “Two Pieces”, “Nightingale”, “In Case”, “Really Don’t Care”, “Without The Love”, “Firestarter”, “Something That We’re Not”, “Never Been Hurt”, “Shouldn’t Come Back” and “Warrior” as well as current single “Heart Attack”.
Demi Lovato graces Company magazine’s June 2013 issue, on newsstands May 8th!
The 20-year-old actress/singer opens up to the British magazine about her true friends, whether or not she would ever create a fashion line, and more! Check it:
On her true friends: “I don’t have loads of friends. I used to, but then I realized, do any of them actually care? Now I have people who, if I break my leg in the middle of the night, they’ll come to the hospital with me. Or they’ll answer the phone at 4am if I need them. Most of my friends are not in the industry. I don’t like that lifestyle, the paparazzi, going to Hollywood places. I stick to my neighborhood and to my closest friendships.”
On potentially creating a fashion line: “I love Sir Philip [Green]. He’s charming and has a really good heart. He’s very smart and knows exactly what he’s doing. Right now, I’m focused on music and touring, so I think it’d be a lot to take on fashion as well. You never know though, I’m kind of like a machine. I just keep on going. If I were to do anything with fashion, it would have to have meaning behind it – and to make women feel happy whatever body shape they are.”
