Demi Lovato launches special mental health Fund admist coronavirus pandemic

Demi Lovato says it is a “sign of strength” seeking help with your mental health.

The ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ is helping to launch The Mental Health Fund – which is raising money to fund four different organizations to help people protect their mental health amidst the coronavirus pandemic. She took to Instagram to encourage others to open up about their mental health struggles.

She said: “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. 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. 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. But the strongest thing someone can do is take that first step in getting help, whatever shape or form that is.”

And the 27-year-old singer – who has had her own mental health battles in the past – has really been enjoying focusing on the positives in lockdown and has even found a new hobby, photography.

She told People magazine: “I’ve been exercising and going on walks. I like walking my dogs. I was doing yoga in the beginning but kind of fell off. I’ll start that back up again. Meditating … anything that helps you focus and get centred is really good for you. Every time I go on my dog walks, I take pictures of stuff in nature. I was just talking to a friend yesterday who’s a photographer and I was like, ‘I think I’m starting to really like photography!’ That might be a new hobby for me.”

This is not the first public action Demi has taken to address the stigma that surrounds mental health. In March as earlier reported on The Sauce, Demi joined hands with close friend Miley Cyrus on her Instagram Live series ‘Bright Minded: Live with Miley.’ The ‘I’m Ready’ crooner talked about the different ways she remains optimistic during dark periods and the tactics she uses.
