Michelle Williams ''Proudly'' Seeking Help for Depression

Former Destiny's Child singer Michelle Williams has revealed she's now happy and healthy after recently seeking medical help for mental health issues.

Michelle Williams, a member of Destiny's Child, announced that after years of giving talks and encouraging others to seek help, she's taken her own advice to do the same.

According to TMZ, the 37-year-old Destiny's Child singer is being treated in a facility outside of Los Angeles and has been there for several days.

When she was in her teens, Williams struggled with the symptoms of depression but wasn't sure what to call it.

Last year, Williams told the hosts of "The Talk" that she didn't realize she'd been suffering from depression until she was in her 30s, despite experiencing symptoms since she was a teenager. "You have given unselfishly of your time and support to so many and I know that you will be the best example of self care which we all need", Lawson wrote. "I've been suffering since the age of between 13 and 15. When I disclosed it to our manager [Matthew Knowles] at the time, bless his heart, he was like 'y'all just signed a multi-million dollar deal, you're about to go on tour, what do you have to be depressed about.' So I was like, 'maybe I'm just exhausted, '" Michelle added. "What do you have to be depressed about?'" she said.

The songstress is not devoid of support in this trying time as her fiancè Chad Johnson and close friends have shown support after her big announcement.
