Demi Lovato has been a great advocate in the mental health field over the years, using her platform to bring awareness to the importance of seeking help and stigmas surrounding the issue. Now the singer is using her own tour to continue her great work!
Demi announced on Good Morning America that her upcoming Tell Me You Love Me tour will feature group therapy and motivational speeches for attendees before the actual show FOR FREE. LA-based mental health and addiction treatment center CAST Centers will be facilitating the workshops on tour. Demi herself was once a patient there back in 2011, and now is a co-owner.
“It’s basically like a therapy session before the concerts, and we have speakers from all over and we’re also helping out with different charities from around the country,” she revealed about the workshops.
The singer provided something similar for her fans during her Future Now tour with Nick Jonas and it makes sense that she will continue to do so. Demi herself has gone through addiction along with an eating disorder and bipolar disorder, so she understands the importance of helping others who may be going through some of the same things.
“I think that it’s important for me to use my voice for more than just singing,” she added. “I just know how important it is to use my platform to help others and to share my story in hopes that it inspires people to either get into recovery or better themselves. Whatever it is, I just want people to know they’re not alone and I’m here for them.” Demi is really amazing for this!
The Tell Me You Love Me Tour kicks off Feb. 26 with DJ Khaled and Kehlani as Demi’s special guests. Hoping to see some great footage from these workshops!
