Demi Lovato Speaks Out About Living with Mental Illness Before her Performance at the Democratic National Convention.

The Democratic National Convention saw a diverse and a caring side of America. With an array of political figures, artists and social activists enlightening the audience and the rest of the country about the challenges faced by the country and aims of the Democratic presidential candidate Hilary Clinton to solve them.

One of those pressing issues was highlighted by the 23 year old star Demi Lovato. The Heart Attack singer talked about living with mental illness. Having previously suffered from bipolar disorder, substance abuse and an eating disorder, she has always been very candid about her experience.

Her moving speech at the DNC was no less. Demi admitted that she had mental illness, according to BBC. Fortunately, she also has the resources to battle her disorders and treatment from a top notch facility. There are so many people in the USA who are suffering from mental illness.

According to RollingStone, she said that those people cannot seek treatment because they are either afraid of being stigmatized or they do not afford it. She elaborated that mental illness was a serious issue. It led to severe conditions including suicide, substance abuse and medical issues throughout life.

She said that mental health issues were a part of the healthcare agenda for any politician. She said that it was not a political thing but a matter of doing what was right. She said that any political constituent should make it their top priority to provide healthcare to people of all walks.

She then said that she was glad to be backing a presidential candidate who she was sure would fight for the right of people to healthcare. She then declared her support for Hilary Clinton and performed her song “Confident” live.
