Earlier this week Michelle Williams took to Instagram to open up about her mental health illness that she has been battling with for a few years now.
In the post she stated:
“ 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 you wellbeing.
I recently listened to the same advice I have given to thousands around the world and sought help from a great team of healthcare professionals. Today I proudly, happily and healthily stand here as someone who will continue to always lead by example as I tirelessly advocate for betterment of those in need. If you change your mind. You can change your life.”
The Destiny’s Child star didn’t get into the specifics of what type of mental health issue she is battling or seeked treatment for but Williams received an immediate overload of love and support from fans.
