We send you nothing but love and prayers Michelle. May everyone take time to recognize the powerful actions she has taken to bring awareness to not only her health, but the others that are out here feeling the same way. Stay strong, girl!
Black people as a whole we never talk about mebral health issue. We pray about it and sweep it under the rug. I’m proud of Michelle Williams for speaking out— Token Black Guy (@MurseErnie) July 17, 2018
Love to Michelle Williams. Black women and girls, it can be hard out here for us and even harder to share the things we battle in silence. Praying and hoping we all find the support we need during the dark days.— Christiana Amarachi Mbakwe (@Christiana1987) July 18, 2018
