Demi Lovato Uses Her Platform To Help Launch Mental Health Fund Amid Pandemic

Demi Lovato has helped to launch The Mental Health Fund for those struggling amid the pandemic.

Chatting with People, the 27-year-old singer shared the importance of the initiative, which will support four organizations dedicated to crisis counseling via text message.

“It’s so important that people have these lines because sometimes you feel really alone and you don’t know where to turn or who to talk to,” Demi shared. “You’re afraid that these thoughts you’re having are too dark, and you need guidance. That’s where this comes in. It can provide help to people who are struggling.”

She adds, “Asking for help is not a sign of weakness. It’s a sign of strength. Oftentimes our society tells us that if we ask for help, we are weak,” she says. “But the strongest thing someone can do is take that first step in getting help, whatever shape or form that is.”

Demi has been very open up about her own struggles with mental health in the past.
