“yesterday was #WorldSuicidePreventionDay,” Williams tweeted. “really I just wanna say that when my mind was super dark and hopeless, there was a part of me that felt safe being cynical & shut down. im trying to get healthier now…”

The tweets Wednesday came on the heels of this week’s annual World Suicide Prevention Day, an awareness day observed every September in order to provide worldwide commitment and action in preventing suicides.

And while the special day spurred the singer to post the positive mental health message for her many Twitter followers, she earlier recalled a PARAHOY! cruise breaking point that caught her reflecting on some somber situations.

She told The Tennessean that she only “physically and emotionally survived” her recent hardships “because of music and because of my friendships. It kind of remained a very heavy truth for me the next few years.”
