Michelle Williams Thanks Fans After Seeking Treatment for Depression

Michelle Williams took to Instagram Saturday to thank her fans for their support after it was revealed she was being treated for depression in a mental health facility outside L.A.

 

“Thank you ALL sooooooooooooooo much for every message of love and support sent!” she wrote on Instagram. “My family, friends and fiancé have been AWESOME! Sitting here reflecting on the past two weeks. I had no plans of what I was going through being public BUT now that it is I have a made an even BIGGER commitment to the mental health awareness area.”

She continued, showing that her sense of humor is still intact. “So many people are suffering, hurting, hopeless, lost and don’t see a way out but there is. Depression sucks, but my faith in God and my commitment to doing the work to stay well is my way out! You have to do the work even when you’re tired and feel the heaviness. Take one step at a time! Don’t overwhelm yourself. If you can just get up out the bed and brush your teeth and shower…..DO IT. For people dealing with depression, that is a HUGE step! Now don’t be depressed AND stinky…..pick a struggle! (y’all know I had to add some humor).”

 

TMZ initially reported the news on July 17, when they revealed that the Destiny’s Child singer had been at the facility for the past several days. The 37-year-old Williams has been honest about her struggles with mental health before.

Not only were fans supportive, but her fellow musicians were as well. Missy Elliott tweeted to Williams on July 17, “I want to lift our sis up in prayer because there are so many people battling this and many trying to deal with it alone.”
