Beyonce & Kelly Rowland Called Michelle Williams to Say They've Got Her Back

EXCLUSIVE

12:00 PM PT -- Michelle just shared a message of gratitude for all the love and support she's received the past 2 weeks. She included words of encouragement for those battling with depression like herself ... and even tossed in a joke and a brag about Beyonce's mom cooking her a huge meal.

Thank you ALL sooooooooooooooo much for every message of love and support sent! My family, friends and fiancé have been AWESOME! Sitting here reflecting on the past two weeks. I had no plans of what I was going through being public BUT now that it is I have a made an even BIGGER commitment to the mental health awareness area. So many people are suffering, hurting, hopeless, lost and don’t see a way out but there is. Depression sucks, but my faith in God and my commitment to doing the work to stay well is my way out! You have to do the work even when you’re tired and feel the heaviness. Take one step at a time! Don’t overwhelm yourself. If you can just get up out the bed and brush your teeth and shower.....DO IT. For people dealing with depression , that is a HUGE step! Now don’t be depressed AND stinky.....pick a struggle! 🤣 (y’all know I had to add some humor) Anyhoo.....I love you all very much! Talk soon! ❤️ (yes I need a fill and my roots need to be flat ironed....bye.....I haven’t lost my humor) ❤️ Oh......Miss Tina cooked a HUGE meal for me the other night too, I just wanted to make y’all jealous! 🤷🏽‍♀️

Beyonce and Kelly Rowland immediately dropped what they were doing when they heard Michelle Williams checked into a mental health facility to treat her depression ... and, like good, longtime friends, they reached out to offer their support.

Sources close to Destiny's Child tell TMZ ... Bey and Kelly were incredibly sad after learning Michelle had been struggling with depression and was having such a hard time dealing with it she sought professional help.

We're told both Beyonce and Kelly offered many words of encouragement, expressing their love for her and letting her know -- if Michelle needed anything, they were there to help. 

As we reported ... Michelle checked into a mental health facility in L.A. for several days. Michelle emerged days later alongside her fiance ... with a huge smile.
