Possible to live well with bipolar: Demi Lovato

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Singer Demi Lovato says she is the living proof that it is possible to lead a good life despite her bipolar.

The singer, who first opened up about her mental health and her struggle with addiction and eating disorder in 2011, says her family are always there to support her.



"If you know someone or if you're dealing with it yourself, just know that it is possible to live well. I'm living proof of that," Lovato, 24, told People magazine.

"They're there for me at any moment of the day and will be there to support me throughout my recovery. That relationship is ongoing - it's not something where you see a therapist once or you see your psychiatrist once, it's something you maintain to make sure that you want to live with mental illness. You have to take care of yourself."

On her treatment, the former Disney Channel star recalled a method that proved especially helpful.

"Whenever I was in treatment and I had the urge to do something that was harmful to myself, whether it was self-harming or was just something that wasn't good for me, my treatment team told me to distract myself," she described.
