Demi Lovato’s biological dad recently passed away, and now she’s doing what she can to turn tragedy into opportunity. Because both she and her dad have struggled with addiction and mental health issues, Demi has created The Lovato Treatment Scholarship.

Demi Tweeted:

And continued:

The scholarship goes specifically to help those who need treatment for addiction or mental health issues. Because let’s face it: Treatment centers can cost major $$$$. The scholarship acknowledges that it can’t help everyone, but you should contact them if you think you might be a good candidate. If you or someone you know is interested, email lovatoscholarship@castrecovery.com and talk about your situation. Demi explained it this way:

If you don’t make the cut for the scholarship, but would still like help, Cast Recovery suggests Treatment 4 Addiction. MTV Act can also recommend Half of Us as a starting place for tips and resources on mental health issues, addiction and more. Demi’s staying strong through her deep personal loss, and she’s lending a hand to help others stay strong, too.
