When it comes to mental health and bringing awareness to it, singer/actress, Demi Lovato has always been an open book.
Well, now the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer is on a mission to help others cope with their own mental health. Lovato has teamed upw ith online and mobile therapy company, Talkspace to launch a new project titled Talkspace Access Project – an initiative created to increase access to mental health resources in underserved communities. The special collab will donate 1,000 months of therapy to those who may need it.
In a statement to Refinery29, Lovato said, “Therapy has been critical to my life and well-being, but many still say that mental health conditions are exaggerated or not real.”
Adding, “Mental health conditions are real, and more people than we know suffer through them in silence. Through this partnership, I want to use my voice to bring more awareness to mental health care, let people know it is ok to seek care, and show people that therapy should be available for all who need it.”
The new initiative kicks off with a donation of 500 months of free therapy to The Loveland Foundation – an organization created to bring opportunitiy and healthing to communities of color, especially to Black women and girls. These hours will be distributed to the Loveland Therapy Fund and participants will have access to Talkspace therapists for free!
