Michelle Williams Checks Herself Into Facility for Depression

Michelle Williams has checked into a mental health facility to seek help and support in her struggle with depression.

The 37-year-old singer, best known for her work with Destiny’s Child, has been open about her struggles in the past and even revealed she was once suicidal.

“I think at the age of 25, had I had a name to what I was feeling at the time, I would have disclosed that, ‘I’ve been suffering from depression,’” Michelle said last year on The Talk. “I didn’t know until I was in my 30s what was going on…I’ve been suffering since the age of 13, I didn’t know what to call it.”

Michelle confirmed that she is seeking help in a statement to TMZ.

    I thought it was the actress….

    Regardless. Hope she gets help and is out sooner rather than later.

    Also this is nothing to be proud of, like another outlet is claiming. What is there to be proud of about mental illness or depression??
