Spider-Man Star Tom Holland taking a break from social media for his mental health

Spider-Man actor Tom Holland says he’s taking an extended break on social media for the sake for his mental health.


“I find Instagram and Twitter to be overstimulating, to be overwhelming,” he said in a video. “I get caught up and I spiral when I read things about me online, and ultimately it’s very detrimental to my mental state. So, I decided to take a step back and delete the app.”

You can hear his whole message in the video below.

Aside from the break, Holland used his message to talk about Stem 4, which is a U.K.-based teenage mental health charity that is supported by his organization The Brothers Trust. It has several programs that help kids manage their mental health.

“The Brothers Trust is supporting this charity because we think it’s a fantastic cause,” the 26-year-old explained. “There is an awful stigma against mental health and I know that asking for help and seeking help isn’t something we should be ashamed of, but it is something that is much easier said than done. So hopefully these apps can be your first steps towards being happier and healthier.” 

Tom Holland isn’t the first celebrity who has taken a break from social media or quit it altogether for mental health reasons.

Celebrities such as musician Justin Bieber and professional wrestler Trevor Dean Mann left messages of support on the actor’s video.

The actor is also preparing to take some time off from work in the coming months after filming his upcoming Apple TV anthology series The Crowded Room, which coincidentally, deals with the timely topic of mental health.
