Demi Lovato and Lovatics Celebrate Three Years Unbroken

Demi's transformation from broken to unbroken

Demi Lovato’s “Stay Strong” tattoo has become a motto for Lovatics around the world since the singer got the words inked on her wrist to help her continue to overcome her demons. That’s exactly what she has done for three years and her fans are celebrating her achievement on social media.

The singer left the Timberline Knolls treatment centre in Illinois three years ago to this day and the star has stayed clean since then. In support of Demi’s personal milestone, fans turned #3YearsUnbroken a top trending topic on Twitter by tweeting about their struggles and what Demi’s strength and outspoken nature on the topic of mental health has meant to them:

Many fans are using her lyrics to tell Demi’s story and their own; a story about being young and broken and becoming a strong warrior.

A lot of fan art is circling Twitter and Tumblr in support of the #3YearsUnborken anniversary. Like the photo below, fans are showing Demi’s transformation from young star to strong woman.

Today, Demi thanked her fans on Twitter and sent out a special message to help inspire fans yet again:

With the popular Camp Rock movies, a top-selling album, tour and a much-watched TV show, Demi was on top of the world five years ago. But the starlet was forced to get help and change her life after she punched a former friend in the face in an airport during the Camp Rock 2 tour.

Eight months after leaving treatment, Demi released her third album, Unbroken, which includes songs from before her treatment and after. Demi shared a special message with fans about the album.

After Demi opened up about her depression and bipolar disorder she wrote her book, Staying Stong: 365 Days A Year, released last year. Every page has a date with a corresponding quote, passage and goal. On her #3YearsUnbroken anniversary, a new clip from the audio version of her book was released.

Coincidentally, #3YearsUnbroken falls on the same day as Bell’s Let’s Talk Day, an initiative by the Canadian telecommunications company which supports mental health initiatives. For every text message on a Bell network and every tweet with the hashtag #BellLetsTalk, the company donates five cents to mental health programs.

Like Bell, Demi promotes awareness and help for mental health and substance abuse problems. After he father’s death late last year Demi started The Lovato Treatment Scholarship. It is a joint program with CAST Recovery to help cover costs of getting help for someone who is struggling with mental health or substance abuse.
