Destiny’s Child Star is Battling Depression
17 Jul, 2018
Michelle Williams has been open about her struggle with depression for a while, but she is now seeking medical help.
According to TMZ, the Destiny’s Child member checked herself into a mental health facility outside of Los Angeles a few days ago. “For years I have dedicated myself to increasing awareness of mental health and empowering people to recognize when it’s time to seek help, support and guidance from those that love and care for your wellbeing,” she said in a statement on Twitter Tuesday (July 17).
“Today I proudly, happily and healthily stand here as someone who will continue to always lead by example as I tirelessly advocate for the betterment of those in need,” she continued.
In an interview with The Talk in 2017, the songstress admitted that at times she was suicidal, particularly during the peak of Destiny’s Child’s success. She continues to stand up against the stigma toward mental health.
