Michelle Williams of Destiny's Child has sought treatment for mental health struggles, the singer revealed on Instagram Tuesday. "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," she wrote. "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." She didn't say exactly what she got help for, but CNN reports she has spoken out in the past about struggling with depression since her teens. Sources tell TMZ it is in fact depression she is seeking treatment for, and the gossip site says she has been at a mental health facility just outside Los Angeles for a few days.

"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," her post continues. "If you change your mind, you can change your life." (More Michelle Williams stories.)
