Listen to Demi Lovato's speech about mental illness.

I can't stand the way the media treats young celebrities who have lost their way. We all get lost sometimes. Demi Lovato shows there's another way. And it's awesome and brave and great.

Listen to Demi Lovato's speech about mental illness.

THANK YOU, DEMI LOVATO.

This tough-as-nails Disney star has famously battled mental illness and addiction. But instead of (understandably) dealing with it privately, she has done the complete opposite.

As of March 2015, Demi Lovato has been sober for over three years, and she has allowed us to see her journey.


There's no telling how many young people are hearing her message because of her openness.

Her message about loving your body despite it not being the body of a Barbie Doll...

Her stigma-free message about caring for your mental health...

And (this one's my favorite) her flipping a big ol' bird to the idea that you need to be perfect.

She's become an outspoken advocate for comprehensive care and compassion for those suffering.

Frankly, Demi Lovato tells the Truth We Need to Hear.

Those are just a COUPLE of quotes from her speech at the National Alliance on Mental Illness. I've included the whole speech below.

You'll go from "Who's this mom introducing Demi and why do I love her so???" to "Wow, real talk, this feels true and important" to full-on "DEMI IS MY QUEEN" in under 12 minutes.

I did.

True

Have you ever woken up one day and wondered if you were destined to do more in your life? Or worried you didn't take that shot at your dream?

FOX's new show "The Big Leap." is here to show you that all you need to take that second chance is the confidence to do so.

Watch as a group of diverse underdogs from all different walks of life try to change their lives by auditioning for a reality TV dance show, finding themselves on an emotional journey when suddenly thrust into the spotlight. And they're not letting the fact that they don't have the traditional dancer body type, age, or background hold them back.

Unfortunately, far too many people lack this kind of confidence. That's why FOX is partnering with the Movemeant Foundation, an organization whose whole mission is to teach women and girls that fitness and physical movement is essential to helping them develop self-confidence, resilience, and commitment with communities of like-minded girls.
