As Demi Lovato‘s famous friends continue to show their support following her overdose and hospitalization, the singer’s longtime pal and fellow singer Bea Miller is also expressing her well wishes.
“I’m hoping she is surrounded by people who love her and knows how much the rest of us who can’t be with her all around the world love her,” Miller, 19, tells PEOPLE exclusively.
“Mental health is a very serious thing and I’m hoping that after this unfortunate incident, maybe people will start paying even more attention than they have lately,” says the “I Wanna Know” singer, who is part of the Project: Aloft Star tour and Aloft’s commitment to emerging artists.
“I hope for her health and happiness,” the aurora hit maker adds of Lovato, 25, who temporarily checked out of her in-patient facility to seek additional treatment for mental health and substance abuse weeks after her overdose.

As Miller continues to make a name for herself in the music industry, she is also setting her sights on checking off some bucket list goals.
“I really want to start writing for other artists and with other artists for movies and TV shows. I think it would be really cool to work on more features and work with other artists,” says the star, who released “Brand New Eyes” for the film Wonder, starring Julia Roberts.

“Oh my god, if any artist wants to sing my song themselves I would be excited about it,” she says. “I like to write about whatever genuinely inspiring thing around me, whether it be a story happening to my friend or with me … or something I observe in the world I think should be talked about, more than it is already been talked about.”
