Cate Luther, 51, is a contributor to The Mighty, a blog dedicated to discussing disability, disease and mental illness. Cate has an 11-year-old daughter with bipolar disorder, who also happens to be a huge Demi Lovato fan.
On Wednesday, Cate wrote a letter to Demi Lovato, thanking her for being a role model to her daughter by talking so openly about her illness. Cate also urged the singer to continue to speak up about mental health and keep inspiring children like her daughter.
It's a moving letter, and I hope Demi gets to see it. It's great to see the difference discussing mental health openly can make.
