Lovato to open up in documentary

Demi Lovato is to open up about her stint in rehab in a new documentary.

The Camp Rock star - who sought treatment in 2010 as she was battling bulimia and bipolar disorder - told Access Hollywood she hopes telling her story in MTV show Demi Lovato: Stay Strong will help others.

Demi said: "I think I've definitely had my rock bottom and I think that was probably right before I went into treatment where I said, 'I definitely need help'."

The 19-year-old continued: "I think it was really important for me to do because I feel like I've been given an opportunity to speak out on issues that are really relevant in teenagers' lives today, so I feel like being open and honest with my fans about the things I've been through could possibly help them.

"I just feel like, why not? Why not share my story when it can help others?"

Demi added that recovery is something she still has to work at every day.

"You have days off from work or you have days off from school, but unfortunately, when I have a day off, I still have to see my therapist or I still have to go do this or this or this...

"Recovery doesn't have days off and you still have to make sure you maintain the healthy mindset, even when you kind of want to give up or you want a day off from it," said the actress and singer.
