We’re sending our thoughts and prayers for singer Michelle Williams. The Destiny’s Child member and gospel solo artist is dealing with depression issues and has checked herself into a mental health facility to seek help.
Many people battle with depression or mental illness but because of the negative stigma they refuse to seek help. I want to commend Michelle Williams for recognizing her need for help and getting that help. I want to encourage anyone who feels overwhelmed or like they need to talk to someone to seek professional Christian counseling...that's the brave thing to do.
Williams wrote in a statement on Tuesday, "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,”.

According to sources, Williams is being treated in a facility just outside of Los Angeles and has been there for the past several days. Michelle has been open with her struggles in the past … revealing her battle with depression in an interview last year.
