          Demi Lovato’s Heartfelt Message To Anyone Considering Suicide


          March 19, 2018

          Singer and actress Demi Lovato claims she was 7 the first time she considered killing herself, but says that wasn’t the last time. The 25-year-old who says she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at 18, admits she struggled with addiction, an eating disorder, and self-harm since childhood, and has been in recovery for the past six years.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Life in crisis?

          “There are millions of young girls watching this conversation right now,” Dr. Phil says to the pop icon on Tuesday’s episode. “What would you say to that Demi today that wanted to take her life those years ago?”

          “I would say, ‘hold on,’ because the longer you go without acting on an urge, the easier that it will be for you, and the more resilient – the more strong you will become. And you’ll be able to show that light to so many people.”

          Continuing she says, “And if I could tell anybody that’s thinking about taking their own life, is to reach out to people. Don’t hold it inside – don’t isolate. Reach out to people, whether it’s close friends, family. If you feel like you don’t have anybody, look within yourself and try to find that resilience that will ultimately get you through whatever it is you’re going through. Every single person on this planet is worth life.”

          Demi Lovato is a partner at CAST Centers, a dual diagnoses treatment and comprehensive wellness program based in West Hollywood, California. She and her partner, Mike Bayer, Founder and CEO of CAST created CASTonTOUR, combining concert performances and pop culture with motivational speakers to shine a light on the issues of mental health and addiction.

          Tune in to Tuesday’s Dr. Phil to learn more about Demi’s journey to recovery and her mission with CASTonTOUR.
