Destiny’s Child singer, Michelle Williams is PROUDLY seeking help for mental health issues.
The 37-year-old has previously spoken about being depressed and “suicidal”.
In an Instagram post, Michelle said that as a mental health awareness advocate, she “listened to the same advice” she’s given to others.
She’s had messages of support from artists including original Destiny’s Child member LaTavia Roberson and Missy Elliott.
“For years, I’m in one of the top-selling female groups of all time suffering with depression, Michelle Williams said in an interview on US TV in October 2017.
“It got really, really bad, to the point of being suicidal.”
She added: “I was at that place where it got so dark and heavy because sometimes you feel like ‘I’m the provider, I take care of people, I’m not supposed to be feeling this way – what do I do?’
“I wanted out.”
She has gained a lot of SUPPORT since her post:
Williams did not disclose the nature of the condition or conditions for which she sought treatment, but she has opened up in the past about her battles with depression.
Last year, Williams told the hosts of “The Talk” that she didn’t realize she’d been suffering from depression until she was in her 30s, despite experiencing symptoms since she was a teenager.
“So many people are walking around acting like they’ve got it all together and they’re suffering,” she told the hosts.
In her statement on Tuesday, Williams assured, “Today I proudly, happily and healthily stand here as someone who will continue to always lead by example as I tirelessly advocate for betterment of those in need.”
We keep Michelle UPLIFTED in PRAYER!!
