She helped me about bullying and also changed my ideas about how important mental health is. She and her music were there for me when I couldn’t say it to anyone. She helped me a lot and if I’m a confident and a happy girl today she’s why @ddlovato #HowDemiHasHelpedMe

As a bipolar person who has also struggled with addiction, Demi has shown me you can still be smart, beautiful, and accomplished while also dealing with the demons that are so debilitating and are never at rest. #HowDemiHasHelpedMe #HowDemiHelpedMe
