Now that's our kind of confession! Demi Lovato isn't ashamed of her struggle with mental health issues- she's a survivor!
The former Disney star spoke openly and proudly about her addiction and depression for National Children's Mental Health Awareness Day.
"You're constantly asking yourself, what if people find out my diagnosis? What if they don't want to be my friend anymore? …would I lose my career?"
So why talk about it now? She says she didn't have anyone at that age to look up to, to let her know it was OK to face her problems head on!
And she wants to make sure kids dealing with the same kinds of pressures she did know they can make it out the other side.
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see the entire heartbreaking speech!
We love you Demi! And this bravery you're showing by speaking out on this only makes us want to be your friend even more!
