According to TMZ, she has checked in to work on her struggle with Depression.
Considering the huge stigma of Mental Health, it’s a good thing that Michelle Williams is taking steps to work on her troubles. According to the report, she is being treated outside of Los Angeles and has been there for a few days now.
A statement was released saying the following:
“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.”
“Today I proudly, happily and healthily stand here as someone who will continue to always lead by example as I tirelessly advocate for the betterment of those in need.”
It is not reported what is causing the depression, whether it be just life catching up with her, the lack of Destiny’s Child after so many years, or – news flash, you can just be depressed and not have an exact reason. The human body is a hard thing to drive, and many people that struggle to fight a constant battle with Depression. It’s just like other diseases, such as cancer, it’s just difficult to treat, and not everyone makes it out alive.
I, for one, am very glad that Williams checked in to get help. There are many people that have taken their lives as of late in the public eye, such as Anthony Bourdain, Kate Spade, Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington, so it’s good that she is, as she says, leading by example.
