Demi also addressed the misconceptions surrounding mental illness during the interviewing, such as people thinking "you're fine one minute and then you're not fine the next minute, and in reality, that's not how it works", what techniques she uses to keep herself in a positive state, and shared that for her it all comes down to taking things one day at a time.

"I'm in the studio right now", she confirmed.

Demi also stated that she's still sober - a feat for someone in the spotlight, as well as someone so young - and credits her ongoing day-to-day mantra for her success.

"If you know someone or if you're dealing with it yourself, just know that it is possible to live well", said Demi.

Demi recently opened up to People about how she maintains balance in her life. "If you know someone or you're dealing with it yourself, just know that it is possible to live well".

In the past, Demi Lovato has been candid about her struggles with drug addiction, bulimia, and mental illness.

She shared how she manages it all, saying, "Every day is a work in progress so hopefully I make it to 2017 with my sobriety".

There are several different types of bipolar disorder, the most common being bipolar I and bipolar II.

The Be Vocal Project is a series of photographs documenting 10 people from all over the US who are suffering with mental health conditions. "Also, many people tend to think that patients with bipolar disorder are constantly in manic episodes, e.g., are more elevated in mood, more talkative, more energized, and need less sleep, when in fact, people with bipolar disorder usually spend much more of their time in depressive episodes". "I have fans that deal with all sorts of mental illnesses so this is very important to them". The group aims to support individuals with mental illness and encourage them to open up and seek help.
