Demi Lovato opens up about her battle with mental health on CBS Sunday Morning in a segment that airs this Sunday (September 11). After attending CAST Centers, a mental health and wellness treatment facility in Los Angeles, in 2013, Lovato decided to become a co-owner. “I don’t know what it says,” she admits on the program. “It just feels good.”
Part of her ownership has to do with the kind of help the Center offered her after she attended it for depression, bulimia and substance abuse. But part of it has to do with the good Lovato wants to do with her position. “It sounds ridiculous, but I kind of made a pact with God,” Lovato says. “And I don’t even think you’re supposed to do that, but I promised, ‘If You make me a singer one day, I’m going to use my voice for so much more than singing, and I’m going to help people with it.'”
Since attending the facility, she’s learned how to be a singer in the spotlight without depending on drugs and alcohol. “And because of that,” she adds, “I’m sitting here right now, alive and more successful than I’ve ever been.”
CBS Sunday Morning airs at 9am.
