Demi Lovato (selfie) announcing the Cast on Tour Contest, Instagram
Demi Lovato continues to keep it real! Having bravely shared her personal struggle with depression, bulimia and addiction, Demi Lovato will commemorate her six-year anniversary of sobriety by asking others to come out of the shadows to help people do the same. Lovato and CAST on Tour have launched a contest to give one person the platform to share their own personal story of recovery. For every stop on Lovato’s North American tour, CAST on Tour hosts a free pre-show forum for concert ticketholders on mental health awareness, with the goal of erasing the stigma around seeking help.
The winner of the contest will participate as a speaker in Tampa, Florida on March 31. Transportation and hotel is included. Mike Bayer, founder/CEO of CAST Centers, will provide a private coaching session to prepare for the talk. The winner will be chosen March 27 on CAST on Tour Instagram. The contest is open to anyone with a compelling personal story to tell, describing how they recovered from addiction, anxiety, depression, an eating disorder, or something that affected their mental health.

CAST on Tour is sponsored by CAST Foundation, the nonprofit arm of CAST Centers, the nation’s premier mental health and wellness advocate. Produced by Live Nation and featuring special guests DJ Khaled and Kehlani, the 20-city CAST on Tour began February 26 in San Diego, CA and wraps April 2 in Newark, NJ (the Newark show was rescheduled from March 21 due to inclement weather). Bayer and Lovato partnered to bring CAST Centers on tour for the first-time last year when CAST Centers joined Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas on the Honda Civic Tour: Future Now.
