Former Destiny's Child singer Michelle Williams took to Instagram today to inform fans she had checked herself into a mental health institution for depression.
Williams, 37, is been treated at a facility outside of Los Angeles per TMZ.
Williams, had spoken up about her suicidal thoughts and depression previously during an interview with The Talk. She discuses the stigma surrounding depression and her struggles to identify what she was feeling.
“I didn’t know until I was in my thirties what was going on. I just thought it was growing pains,” she said at the time. “I’ve been suffering since the age of between 13 and 15. At that age, I didn’t know what to call it.”
So many people struggle with the same feelings, I am glad she not only is speaking up about it but is getting the help she needs!
