Demi Lovato Inspired Her Mom to Seek Help for Herself

Demi Lovato wears a matching blazer and pants while making an appearance on Good Morning America on Friday morning (March 16) in New York City.

The 25-year-old singer was on the show to help her mom Diana De La Garza promote her new book, in which she opens up about her struggles with mental illness.

“I feel very proud of her,” Demi said. “I know it’s something that’s not easy, first-hand being somebody that’s struggled with mental illness and being open and talking about it: I know that it’s not easy to be open with the world.”

“The changes that I’ve seen in my mom: She’s happier, and she’s calmer,” Demi added. “She used to suffer with anxiety, and when she self-medicated, she was more depressed, and she kind of had a cloud over her. Now she glows, and she is just so cheerful, and she’s the most positive person I know.”
