Over the course of her career, Demi Lovato has raised her voice to discuss mental illness. She has used her platform to speak about her own struggles with mental health while also working to provide youth with access to resources for help.
In her latest effort, the pop singer is taking an even bigger step to aid her fans struggling with mental health.
Lovato announced that she would provide therapy sessions for fans attending her shows.

In an interview with “Good Morning America,” the singer shared that she would be providing those attending her “Tell Me You Love Me” tour with access to free mental health counselors at the concert.
“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,” Lovato said. “So it’ll be an incredible, very moving, and inspiring experience.”
Before the concert starts, ticket holders will be given access to group therapy sessions and wellness workshops.
“It’s part of my whole life, about giving back, and I think it’s really important that I continue to do this while I’m on tour,” Lovato said.
The Grammy-nominated singer has been open about her struggles with health and addiction for years.
Last year, Lovato opened up about her fight to overcome bulimia, anorexia, bipolar disorder, and cocaine addiction in a Youtube documentary called “Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated.”
“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,” Lovato said. “Whatever it is, I just want people to know they’re not alone and I’m here for them.”
