BRIEF: Destiny's Child singer and Rockford native Michelle Williams seeks mental health help

Rockford Register Star - 7/18/2018

July 18--LOS ANGELES -- Destiny's Child singer and Rockford native Michelle Williams says she's seeking help for the depression she has struggled with for years.

Williams said in an Instagram post Tuesday that she has "sought help from a great team of health care professionals."

She gave no specifics on her treatment, and a message left with her manager seeking details was not immediately returned.

Williams' post says that for years she has dedicated herself to increasing awareness of mental health and empowering people to seek help. She says she recently decided to listen to the advice she has given and wants to lead by example in seeking treatment.

The 37-year-old Williams was a core member of Destiny's Child, the trio with Beyonce Knowles and Kelly Rowland that sat atop the R&B world from 1997 to 2006.

Williams graduated from Auburn High School. Earlier this month it was announced that she and her fiancé, Pastor Chad Johnson, will be the subject of a reality television series in the works on Oprah Winfrey's network, OWN. Williams' local roots will be featured in scenes that were filmed around Winnebago County earlier this year.
