DEMI LOVATO FULL SPEECH TRANSCRIPT:

“Thank you so much. That introduction was really overwhelming and, the most positive way, so thank you.

Hi, everyone. My people. It is an honor and a privilege to be here today at NAMI’s national day of action. Looking out at all of you is so inspiring. It is great to see so many people dedicated to improving mental health and the lives of others. Seeing people of awe ages from all over the country come together gives me so much hope that changes is possible.

Those of us here today know mental illness has no prejudice. It affects people of every race, age, gender, religion, and economic status. It doesn’t discriminate between republicans or democrats either.

That’s why we are here today. We need to send a simple message to our nation’s leaders, mental health matters, and must be taken seriously. It is time to act for mental health and pass comprehensive mental health bills this year. We’re here because groups like NAMI helped us understand that our voices really do matter. Our stories really do matter. We have the power to make a difference, and we have the personal experience needed to be taken seriously. We know what it means to have our lives, or the lives of people we love get off track because of mental illness. We understand that mental illness is serious and can be absolutely devastating.

We also know mental illness can be treatable when we have access to appropriate, comprehensive care. I know it is largely because of our personal experience with mental illness; each of us is here today. As I learn more about my own illness and the experience of others, I realize how much we all have in common, even if mental illness has made a few headlines because of my career. There is, there’s a number of ways in which I have been very lucky, yet, even with access to so much, my journey has not been an easy one by any means.
