Michelle Williams has checked into a mental health facility for depression.
According to TMZ, the 37-year-old is being treated at a facility outside Los Angeles and has been there for at least several days.
“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 tweeted to fans Tuesday evening.
“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,” she concluded.

Williams has been open about her battle with depression, which started when she was a teenager. “I didn’t know until I was in my thirties what was going on. I just thought it was growing pains,” she told “The Talk” last year. “I’ve been suffering since the age of between 13 and 15. At that age, I didn’t know what to call it.”
