Michelle Williams

In 2013, former Destiny’s Child singer Michelle Williams opened up about suffering from depression as a teen. Williams didn’t take meds for help, but credits therapy, exercise and positive thinking to overcoming this mental health illness. Williams told Rolling Out Magazine that she hopes that sharing her story will help others to seek the help that they need.
