In honor of Suicide Prevention Day (September 10), Demi Lovato and Marshmello have unveiled the highly anticipated music video for their joint single, ‘It’s OK Not to Be OK.’
Though warmed in a feel-good, summertime ready Pop cloak, the tune houses touching lyrics about mental health.
“Feeling like a drop in the ocean that don’t nobody notice, maybe it’s all just in your head,” Lovato sings. “Feeling like you’re trapped in your own skin and now your body’s frozen, broken down — you’ve got nothing left.”
The powerhouse vocalist is no stranger to using her voice to shine light on the importance of mental health and has even used her own past struggles to inspire her legion of young fans.
See just how she and Marshmello are working to continue those efforts with their new visual.
The clip is used to help bring awareness to Hope For The Day (HFTD) – a non-profit movement empowering the conversation on proactive suicide prevention and mental health education.

The organization reminds visitors:
“Suicide Prevention starts with a conversation we’re not having with our mental health due to Stigma. The first step to breaking that silence is dispelling stigmas of fear, judgement, and shame about our internal experiences. We achieve that by proclaiming It’s Ok Not To Be Ok!”
