Performers/advocates, Be Vocal: Speak Up For Mental Health
Singer Demi Lovato and actress Chyler Leigh came together over the last year to throw their influence behind the Be Vocal initiative, which encourages individuals to share their struggles with mental health. Lovato, who is candid about her struggles with bipolar disorder, eating disorders and drug addiction, supported the organization as an executive producer of the documentary Beyond Silence. Leigh opened up about her bipolar disorder diagnosis and became a leading spokesperson for the initiative.
“I’m proud of myself to be able to speak about where I’m at,” Leigh said in a recent Be Vocal video. “That’s what I love about Be Vocal. It’s very community based … It’s surrounding yourself with the right people.”
