Singer Demi Lovato took the stage at the Democratic National Convention on Monday to give a speech about living with mental illness. Lovato, who has suffered from bipolar disorder as well as eating disorders and substance abuse, spoke candidly about her personal experiences and the need for politicians to do more for those suffering. She ended the speech by reiterating her support for Clinton, and then by singing her song "Confident."
I stand here today as proof that you can live a normal and empowered life with mental illness. I'm proud to support a presidential candidate who will fight to ensure all people living with mental health conditions get the care they need to live fulfilling lives.
That candidate is Hillary Clinton. Let's make her the next president of the United States of America.
In turn, Clinton has been vocal in her support of Lovato. In the past, she's lauded Demi for “talking about issues that people sometimes find hard to talk about," specifically in reference to mental health issues.
