“If you know someone or if you’re dealing with it yourself, just know that it is possible to live well. I’m living proof of that,” Lovato said in a recent interview with People magazine.
She also acknowledges that getting help is an ongoing process, not an instant result. Lovato still reaches out to her family, friends and treatment team when she needs it.
“They’re there for me at any moment of the day and will be there to support me throughout my recovery,” Lovato said. “That relationship is ongoing — it’s not something where you see a therapist once or you see your psychiatrist once, it’s something you maintain to make sure that you want to live with mental illness. You have to take care of yourself.”
We love the message Demi Lovato is putting across, but that’s when things took a turn for the eye-roll worthy. The pop star decided to use this opportunity to promote her app game, Zombarazzie Adventure.
“Whenever I was in treatment and I had the urge to do something that was harmful to myself, whether it was self-harming or was just something that wasn’t good for me, my treatment team told me to distract myself,” she said. And the perfect way to do that? Zombarazzie Adventure, of course.
