Jamie continued, 'If you deal with mental illness or care for someone dealing with mental illness, then you know how important it is to respect the situation with privacy for the person, and the family trying to protect their loved ones, no matter how it may appear to the public, and as the public we must learn to do the same.'

'I pray this doesn’t bring shame to anyone dealing with mental illness, you are not alone, and you are loved.'

'Sending all my love and prayers to all of you,' she finished.

Jamie didn't stop here. In a screenshot by JustJared, she hit back at another user for saying the family should speak out about Britney's mental health.

She responded, 'I would never speak out just to clarify things to the public, when the person it pertains to does not want that to happen.'

'I'd rather take all the hate, then speak about someone elses personal matter, that they want to keep private.'
