Demi Lovato knows all too well the struggles of mental health and addiction.
The 22-year-old "Heart Attack" singer, who is now a celebrity spokesperson for the Be Vocal: Speak Up for Mental Health campaign, opened up about her own struggles with bipolar disorder and alcohol abuse during an appearance on Thursday's Today show.
"I've been very open about my story just because that the more honest and open I am, the more people that I'm gonna be able to reach," said Demi, noting the lack of conversation that happens regarding mental illness.
"I wish that more people can understand from a point where it's not a choice to have an addiction. And with bipolar disorder, it's a chemical imbalance and it's something that you have to figure out your own treatment with your own team. In order to do that, it takes time," she continued.
"Finally I'm in a great place where I can say recovery is possible," said Demi.
