Demi Lovato received the Artistic Award of Courage for her inspirational leadership and advocacy in using her platform to speak out about mental health in order to reduce stigma, raise awareness, and help others. Julia S. Gouw accepted the Humanitarian Award and Dr. Kelsey Martin was honored with the Visionary Award. Lisa Kudrow hosted the event, while Chord Overstreet took the stage with his guitar to perform.
