“Don’t be afraid to reach out for help”- Michelle Williams speaks on her Battle with Depression at Height of Destiny’s Child Fame

Michelle Williams opens up about her struggles with depression, sharing, "I think at the age of 25, had I had a name to what I was feeling at the time, I would have disclosed that, 'I've been suffering from depression.' 

I didn't know until I was in my 30s what was going on...I've been suffering since the age of 13, I didn't know what to call it, I'm in one of the top-selling female groups of all time [Destiny's Child], suffering with depression. 

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 tired." She continues, "It got really bad...I was suicidal." I was to that place where it got so dark and heavy." Sheryl Underwood; "That's what happened to my husband, that he was suicidal, and he couldn't come out of that valley of depression, so I'm really glad you're talking about this right now."
