Demi Lovato Supports Mental Health & The Jed Foundation

August 19, 2014


We are incredibly proud to share with you this inspiring video from platinum-selling recording artist, author, actress, and mental health advocate, Demi Lovato.

At 21 years old, with over 60 million fans on social media alone, Demi Lovato is undoubtedly one of the most inspirational role models for young adults in the world, and she is using her power for good.

Demi is leading the way in encouraging young adults everywhere to speak up about mental health and seek help if they are struggling. She has embarked upon The Mental Health Listening and Engagement Tour* to support the mental health community’s vision of building a new generation of inspiring, informed mental health advocates. The Jed Foundation is extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to spend time with and learn from such an impressive individual, and as the first stop on her tour, we are excited to help launch this powerful effort.

In the first in a series of videos covering her tour over the next few months, you will learn about Demi’s personal experiences and motivation to become a mental health advocate and see footage from her visit with The Jed Foundation and our 13th Annual Gala.

Watch the video here!
We are grateful to have Demi Lovato join us in supporting the emotional health of our young adults.

* The Mental Health Listening & Engagement Tour is supported by Sunovion Pharmaceuticals Inc. as part of the company’s ongoing commitment to making a meaningful difference in the lives of individuals and families affected by mental illness.

The World Health Organization defines “mental health” “as a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.” In using this definition, S2i recognizes that some mental health challenges reflect brain diseases that, like physical diseases, require appropriate stigma-free and patient-centered care and include both mental health and substance use disorders. Other mental health challenges stem from social conditions and marginalization and require different forms of interventions.
