Demi Lovato is to open up about her battle with bipolar disease on the inaugural Mental Health Listening & Engagement Tour.

The singer, who has been candid about her own health woes following a spell in rehab, will further address how she copes with the mood disorder condition she was diagnosed with in 2011, after announcing she'll be part of a new U.S. tour that aims to raise awareness about mental health issues.

In a public service announcement released on Friday, Lovato revealed she'll be connecting with experts and reaching out to those who are struggling.

She says, "Bipolar depression really got my life off track, but today I'm proud to say I am living proof that someone can live, love, and be well with bipolar disorder when they get the education, support and treatment they need. I want to shine a light on the people out there who, like me, are learning to live well with mental illness by getting the right diagnosis and finding the right treatment plan. I want to be the most informed and powerful advocate I can be and to help people to find the courage to seek help."
