Demi Lovato helped tack a stand today as she came to Washington DC to help lobby Congress to pass a comprehensive mental health bill. The National Alliance on Mental Illness’s annual four-day convention in Washington began today and Demi made a wonderful and lasting impression during her speech. Demi spoke about the importance of mental health awareness, her personal struggles, and how important it is for Congress to help pass laws to help those who struggle.

Demi says, “Those of us here today know that mental illness has no prejudice. It affects people of every race, age, gender, religion and economic status. It doesn’t discriminate between Republicans or Democrats, either.” She went on to say that although she was “in no way shape or form” a policy expert, that “It’s time for Congress to act. This year.” She added, “I want to show the world that there is life — surprising, wonderful, unexpected life — after diagnosis.”

We think that its wonderful that Demi is standing up for what she believes in and is sharing awareness about mental health and the importance passing laws to help. Way to go, Demi! Perhaps a political career is in her future! Would you vote for Demi? We sure would!
