Demi Lovato to offer therapy sessions to fans on US tour

Thursday 25th January 2018

Demi Lovato is offering free therapy and wellness sessions to fans before the concerts on her US tour.

The singer, who has bipolar disorder, says its “really important to take away the stigma of mental illness”.

Fans with concert tickets will be able to sign up to therapy sessions and listen to speakers talking about mental health.

“It’ll be incredible and a very moving and inspiring experience,” she told Good Morning America.

The 25-year-old has been open about her struggles with substance abuse, eating disorders and depression.

She co-owns CAST centres – which treat addiction and mental health – and will be taking their work on the two-month tour which kicks off in February and features special guest DJ Khaled.

“It’s basically like a therapy session before the concerts and we have speakers from all over and we’re also helping out with different charities from around the country, so it’ll be incredible and a very moving and inspiring experience,” she said.
